For our September TD Community Sunday, we welcomed artist, educator, and poet Sheniz Janmohamed to lead a virtual mandala making workshop.
Follow along with Sheniz and learn about a mandala and its various manifestations in arts and culture. Draw upon your senses and memories to create your own mandala, imagining your heart as a city. Use shape, colour, pattern and texture to denote landmarks, buildings, parks and roads—all centred around the heart of your city/mandala.
This mandala activity draws inspiration from MOCA’s exhibition Greater Toronto Art 21, which features works from twenty-one artists working in relation to Toronto today. A key question that the exhibition will explore is “What does it mean to centre a community?” Through our mandala making, we can start to think about how we might personally answer this question.
This event takes place on TD Community Sunday.
TD Community Sundays are made possible through TD Community Sundays by TD Bank Group through its corporate citizenship platform TD Ready Commitment.
MOCA thanks Ontario Trillium Foundation for their support of our Public Programmes and Learning Initiatives.
