Part of the Community Arts Space: What we long for
Co-presented with Akin and Canada Nos Une Multicultural Organization
Join artists Lumy Fuentes and Tina Conlon, alongside Davenport-Perth community residents, to make ceramic butterflies that will be part of The Sin Fronteras Monarch Butterfly Project.
About The Sin Fronteras Monarch Butterfly Project – A Flight Path Without Borders
Every summer and winter, monarch butterflies migrate across the North American continent. Coinciding with the arrival of monarch butterflies in Canada and their departure to Mexico, the Davenport Perth Community Ministry, alongside Canada Nos Une Multicultural Organization, held a series workshops and events within the Davenport Perth community. These workshops led to the creation of a multitude of ceramic butterflies that highlight Turtle Island’s connection with ancient Indigenous cultures and the monarch. Learn more
