Hope & Survival: Halifax Explosion Memorial Quilt

SAQA Atlantic member Laurie Swim is seeking your support in funding her community art project for the 2017 centenary of the Halifax Explosion.

Award-winning Nova Scotia artist Laurie Swim has spent the last four years working on a monumental memorial quilt with 400 volunteers. Two filmmakers have been recording her creative journey for a documentary. Now Laurie needs help finishing the art project in time...

The money raised in this crowd funding campaign will be used primarily to support Laurie to complete her work on the memorial quilt. It will also be used to complete a longer documentary film and to publish an accompanying children's book.

The completed work of art will be exhibited at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic for the anniversary of the explosion in December 2017.

Please consider helping Laurie by contributing funding for the final push. In return, Laurie is offering some exciting perks to thank donors for their support.
