“Leave your pain here and go out and do your magnificent things.”

After hearing a dancer talk about her struggles and thoughts of suicide, Aquilina told her:“Only the defendant [Nassar] would be better off if you were not here. Please stay with us. Stay with your family. Your children need you.”

Aquilina told gymnast Bailey Lorencen:“The military has not yet come up with fiber as strong as you…. Mattel ought to make toys so that little girls can look at you and say, ‘I want to be her.’ Thank you so much for being here, and for your strength.”

During the month of October the GAG is celebrating it’s second birthday.

We participated in the opening celebrations at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s new pavilion opening – working with the public to create personal, activist, textile banners.

October 15th, 2017
We would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) and Mi’kmaq peoples.
This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) and Mi’kmaq peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
