The Paper House Movie (July, 2016)
"Paper House" was a ten week workshop, run by The Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS) and facilitated by Margaret's Expressive Arts Therapy team, in which street, under-housed, and homeless adults collectively produced a short stop motion animation on the theme of housing.
The Villaways diorama explores themes of change and transformation. The visual arts project was created as a response to the Villaways community revitalization. Virginia collaborated with Art Starts and the Villaways community on an arts project which lasted several months. Many Villaways community members participated in the making of the diorama, which explores the makeup of healthy, safe, and fun communities. The 8ft by 8ft Villaways Diorama was exhibited at the Toronto City Hall, Rotunda.

Paving the Way is a community arts project that involves community members in beautifying the neighbourhood park in hopes of inspiring folks to spend more time outdoors. Participants painted park benches, created floor games, and produced two labyrinths. The week-long project was facilitated by artist Virginia Jahyu for Art Starts in the Glendower community in Scarborough.
Both labyrinths, a seven circuit classic plus a rectangle spiral pass-through labyrinth, are painted in the pedestrian pathway.
