‘One Body,' 2020. Acrylic on canvas. 10 ft. x 17 ft. Mission Services, London, Ontario.
Mission Services London's Board of Directors invited people who receives services from the organization to share their input on how to best serve people. People that are systemically marginalized struggling through homelessness and addiction sometimes, shared their insights through painting, writing, storytelling and photography. A team from the community was trained to facilitate the creative sessions. Once the project was completed, the visual stories were delivered to the board members through a creative process to impact decision makers in an emotional level and directly influence the strategic plan.
