Janice Turner has worked in the arts since 1991. She has been writer, creator and performer as a storyteller, puppeteer, clown and more recently visual artist. Throughout Turner’s career the focus and underlying thread have been her feminist values, which informs the stories she tells in each of her chosen media. These ideals were instrumental in her creating “A Night in the Red Tent” that ran annually for seven years on International Women’s Day in Newmarket, Ontario. This was an evening of celebration by women, for women. It was an overwhelming success. Since 2010 Turner has been delving into the influence of her childhood religion and feminism. She is transforming discarded textiles, everyday found objects, human hair and barbed wire to create “The Motherhouse”.
