Tough times breed strong leaders. Leaders have emerged in our communities, our workplaces and in our very homes. They have influenced the way we think, the way we act and the way we take care of each other. Health officials, along with essential service workers the world over, continue to fight hard to protect us and lead the fight during this historic time.
The words of British Columbia’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry ring true everyday:
"This is our time to be kind, be calm, and be safe."
Out of admiration and respect for Dr. Henry's dedication and leadership, Sid has created a special Memory Block commemorating her words. Sid Dickens Inc. has teamed up with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and will be donating 50% of the proceeds from the sale of T-527 Solidarity until August 20th, 2020. Sid will also be signing the Memory Blocks purchased during this time. T-527 Solidarity will still be available to purchase after August 20th as part of the regular collection.
The power to lead lies within each one of us. The time to own it is now.
Memory Blocks are hand crafted plaster made in Vancouver, BC by artist, Sid Dickens. They are finished to a porcelain-like quality and cracked to create an aged look and feel. Each Memory Block is made from hand-poured plaster. Each tile is hand-painted by our artists who also apply different finishes, including silver and gold leafing. Memory Blocks are then hand-stained to ensure consistency of style through the different tiles.
