#EastEndLove Workshop #1
March 23 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Help East End Arts spread some #EastEndLove! This community-engaged and -led public art project is presented by East End Arts, and uses stencil screen printing, collaborative arts workshops, and public art to spread messages of acceptance, anti-discrimination, anti-racism, and love throughout the east Toronto community. Artistically led by lead artist Lara Lucretia, and guided by local grassroots organization East Enders Against Racism, the #EastEndLove project will create a community-engaged, public showcase of community, acceptance, and resiliency.
The #EastEndLove project will feature three workshops in communities throughout east Toronto, led by lead artist Lara Lucretia. Each workshop is uniquely tailored to the individual community, its members, and their needs. Workshops guide participants in imagining the communities that they want to live in, and how to collaboratively translate these desires into visual artworks to be stencil screen-printed and posted throughout their neighbourhoods. Participants will use their lived experiences and local histories as inspiration in co-creating the artwork, while also externalizing their feelings about community, acceptance, tolerance, anti-discrimination, anti-racism, and anti-hate into visual art. Each participant will take home a hand-pulled print of their #EastEndLove image!
