An extension of the Homeglen School of One Global Art Project, Project Y150 YEG-GA is a collaborative e-Public History endeavour which documents the "everyday" experiences, contributions and active agency of women. First conceived in Fall 2015, this project utilizes the YEG-GA Carvings series and the Homeglen School of One Carving Vignettes advanced literacy program in order to provide multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-dimensional perspectives into Canada and the way Canadian historical memories are intimately linked to the larger World. Canada's 150th anniversary serves as the marker for the production of YEG-GA Vignettes, and collaborators offer original insights into their personal journeys, further shaped by the trajectory of their Canadian recollections and their own heritage. The rich digital tapestry of YEG-GA Vignettes also features the collaborations of members of First Nations' communities, Métis mothers and daughters, foreign visitors and workers, international students, as well as non-female participants who value their female partners and relatives, their female colleagues and friends, and, most importantly, their female ancestors.
