Layer Up - Winter Art Crawl 

Trinity Bellwoods Park is a public area governed by the City of Toronto, and as such is subject to municipal laws and city-regulated infrastructure. While these elements serve to benefit the vast majority of the population, they often inadvertently neglect the needs of minority community members and nonconforming individuals - resulting in some experiencing marginalism within what is considered to be a fundamental community space. The public park is a contentious territory, one that reflects the socio-political ideals of the city’s governing body while simultaneous alienating anybody who doesn’t conform to the municipality’s vision for the area. City-enforced bylaws regulating convergence, rules prohibiting the use of audio amplifiers, and gendered bathrooms are just a few of the many indicators that correspond with the city’s vision for the park. Historically, the land now occupied by Trinity Bellwoods Park has also been a site of colonial activity. Remnants of Trinity College and Garrison Creek can still be found today, serving to remind us of the park’s history since colonisation. 

An exhibition in the form of a winter art crawl, Layer Up offers participants an opportunity to re-envision and assess their relationship to Trinity Bellwoods Park, by engaging with a diverse range of site-specific performances and artistic projects.

Join Nicole Collins and the Toronto Shape-Note Singers for an introduction to shape-note singing from The Sacred Harp tradition that inspired the sound element in Furthest Boundless. The “sacred harp” is the human voice, which combines in this practice into a four-part acapella harmony of hymns and anthems, in an inclusive, non-denominational musical event.
