Comforter Art Action (2004-2014) was a collective action artwork that produced patchwork blankets through social groups and networks. The completed blankets were passed through a chain of relations to shelters and NGOs to people who are experiencing displacement. Since 2001, over 100 Comforter Art Action blankets have been completed and have gone into circulation in Vancouver, Canada and throughout the world.
