Four Lands takes the form of an evolving gallery, with ongoing public drop-ins, offsite workshops and other activities as arranged, a project launch and final presentation and celebration. Artists and diverse community members will create and bring to life their own lands, through drawings, words, miniature models, music, conversation and performance.


Four Lands is a Jumblies travelling arts project, presented and organized at the AGM in partnership with Jumblies Theatre. It explores and expresses people's differing and converging relationships to a shared place. Through drawings, words, miniature models, music, stories, photographs and gentle performance, we create and animate four imaginary landscapes: Goodland (what we like), Badland (what we wish to change), Lostland (what we hold in mind from other times and places), and Dreamland (what we imagine, dream of and wish for).



This project is supported by the Hazel McCallion Fund at the Community Foundation of Mississauga, the Ontario Arts Council, the Government of Ontario, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
