Artists in Residence
Collaborate with local artists and create a community project at the Clayton Community Centre.
Strike a Pose with Claire Moore
Claire has collected poses from the Clayton Heights community—poses that reflect people’s experience of the past year. Claire’s drawings explore the many ways people have been impacted and how we hold these memories in our bodies. Claire’s drawings will be on display at Clayton Community Centre this fall.
Claire Moore is a multi-media artist who lives and works near Crescent Beach. Her art practice ranges from small-scale sculptural interventions to large format oil paintings and her process is often collaborative.
Tell Your Story with Jude
Jude Campbell is a Surrey-based artist who collects found objects and personal historical artifacts. She reconfigures these into multimedia installations to give voice to personal and community stories.
After meeting with local residents to listen to their stories, Jude will use the text from these stories to create a hanging sculpture with members of the community that will hang publicly in the Clayton Community Centre.
