Our #EastEndLove program continues into the summer! Read on to learn more about our exciting exhibition dates!

East End Arts, lead artist Lara Lucretia, and youth mentee Sarafina have hosted four #EastEndLove workshops over the past two months. Together, we’ve worked with community members from across east Toronto neighbourhoods and beyond. Artwork created by community members during the #EastEndLove workshops convey messages of acceptance, ally-ship, anti-hate, pluralism, and love, and were created collaboratively through guided discussion about systems, colonization, transforming, and how we can build the type of communities that we want to live and thrive in.

The next phase of our project includes sharing with you, our community, the amazing artwork participants have created! While community members will be able to view our posters all throughout east Toronto, you are also invited to our Community Wheatpasting Party on July 14th! Find all the details for our upcoming #EastEndLove exhibitions below.
