An Inuit word for “meeting place", Katimavik describes spaces where one’s differences are embraced and there exists a sense of belonging. Chosen by artists from Prospect Human Services, as they came together to stitch a monumental fabric collage, the title of Katimavik reflects the importance of having a place where one feels safe and included in a community.
