Communicate and build relationships with others through the language of the arts. For more information visit: & Community Fusion is an arts-based, thought-provoking, arts-generating continuous work of art by Canadian artist Janice Tanton. In partnership with many others, it is designed to surface and awaken insights and ways of knowing by taking the time to listen deeply between cultures, genders, generations and art-forms. The initial Canadian studio events which occurred between June 7 and September 18, 2009, combined 85+ artists, filmmakers, business people, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, musicians, elders, children, writers and multimedia artists; indigenous and non-indigenous community members from all walks of life, providing the impetus for the creation of this new work, new ways of thinking and being with one another. Community Fusion uses active cross-disciplinary fusional artistic practice to deepen and enhance the understanding and dialogue between artistic genre practices, generations & cultures. It serves as a catalyst to develop relationships when practiced in a nurturing and safe community environment. It heightens your full sensory experience as a human being and wakes us up to what we otherwise could not imagine to be possible.
