For each exhibition, one group member has proposed a theme that the entire group then develops work around.

The collaborative nature of this process continues to result in exciting work from exhibition to exhibition. In Bloodlines, the artists present a collection of deeply personal, carefully considered reflections on their lineages, and how this affects their understanding of themselves and their place in Canadian culture. Investigating this theme unearthed distant connections to European and Slavic ancestry; requiring each member to reconcile previously held beliefs and memories of their origins.

Apart from First Nations, everyone in the diverse country of Canada ultimately hails from somewhere else. Because of this, the artists feel their personal reflections will be widely shared by others and are excited to welcome all to view the tangible results.
