Common Plants

Magnet participated in the Common Plants research project in 2006, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The project, initiated by Judith Rudakoff of York University in Toronto, linked artists and school learners in Iqaluit in Arctic Canada with their peers in Cape Town, South Africa. These linkages occurred through workshops and a website which became a virtual garden into which participants planted their creative ideas and thoughts.
