The Emmanuel College Peace and Justice Mosaic Project engaged the broader community to create a mosaic exploring peace and social justice at Emmanuel and beyond. With guidance from the lead artists at Red Dress Productions, Emmanuel community members built the mosaic and brought a diversity of voices together in a single work splayed across two panels. The mosaic will ultimately hang in the halls of Emmanuel as a statement, a focal point for teaching, and as an artistic accent.
We dedicated the mosaic with a beautiful service on Wednesday, March 26. Alumna Lauren Hodgson and Sarah Chapman preached on their experience working on the mosaic and everyone present had an opportunity to lay their hands on it and transfer a prayer into it.
The last tile was placed in the mosaic just before 1pm on Friday, March 21–right on schedule–and the grouting took place over the following weekend. We are especially grateful to Tristan Whiston and Anna Camilleri at Red Dress Productions, and to Katie and Chantelle for their guidance and contributions.
