We will gather at High Park  to honour and activate a walk created by the Ogimaa Mikana Project, by re-walking and re-mapping their work with our bodies. The walk will take us to a sequence of places around the park where we will pause for teachings and actions. The route we take reveals a map of a turtle. By renewing and remaking this walk by the Ogimaa Mikana Project, we take up the responsibility they have set before us, to make Anishinaabeg legible to the great turtle by walking and honouring the land and all Anishinaabeg. Bring: walking shoes, water, snacks, sun protection, raingear if needed. If you'd like to see the map we make as we walk, bring your favorite GPS tracking app on your phone.

 

Meet at: High Park main entrance on Bloor Street West, at the "High Park" sign

Laneway street art exhibition August 18 & 19, with celebration on Sunday, August 17 from 4 to 7 p.m.!
Inspired by the entrepreneurial television series’ Shark Tank and Dragons’ Den, Dragon Tank aims to reproduce the absurd products pitched within them. With humour in mind, the artworks will function as vestiges of the most needed and most useless consumer products. In a time when ridiculous and nonsensical has become the norm, we are critical of the enigmatic ‘North American Dream’ capitalism offers to consumers and entrepreneurs alike. And question who this ‘dream’ is really for, in the context of race, gender, sexuality, and class.
