The Textile Museum of Canada is partnering with Project Sunshine Canada for a new fundraising initiative in support of family-oriented programs at both organizations. Professional artists, designers, and celebrities are creating one-of-a-kind, collectable Surgi Dolls, to be auctioned online and displayed at the Museum from April 5-11. Surgi Dolls represent an intersection of healing and creativity through textiles: Project Sunshine gives children blank dolls of diverse skin tones to make their own, to travel with them through their medical journey and provide a sense of comfort and control. By participating in the auction, you could take home your very own collectible Surgi Doll - these art objects are not for hospital use. The auction will culminate in a ticketed event at the Museum on April 11, 7-10 pm, with special guest Sally Siren.

Akin King member Rakefet Arieli, Akin alumni Emily Norry and many other talented artists were invited to decorate a Surgi Doll for The Doll Project: #SewMuchHeart. The Textile Museum of Canada has partnered with Project Sunshine Canada for a new fundraising initiative in support of family-oriented programs at both organizations. Get a chance to see the dolls in person at the Textile Museum until April 11th. Or bid on them online here.
