The Circling Project is Myths and Mirrors’ response to the times we live in. We are inviting Sudburians who want to do something about the state of our world but are feeling overwhelmed to circle with us: to share stories, fears, strategies, to make plans and to make art that bring us closer to the world we want.

Over the next year, we will be experimenting with different ways to bring people together to circle around issues, ideas, activities and projects. We think that the important thing is that we are coming together in creative ways around difficult issues in difficult times. We need each other now more than ever.

The Circling Project launched in February 2019 with a circle facilitated by Indigenous 2-Spirit storyteller and advocate, Teddy Syrette. This circle was followed by a series of linocut workshops that have continued throughout the year and allowed us to connect with folks of all ages and backgrounds, including many that have never participated in Myths and Mirrors programming before.

The Circling Project is funded by the Catherine Donnelly Foundation.
