Repainting Perceptions

In Partnership with Art Ignite, a community arts organization based in North York, Repainting Perceptions provides space for Flemingdon and Thorncliffe Park residents to share their stories, challenge religious and cultural stereotyping, and break through social isolation. Photography and portraiture painting will be used as a way to stimulate conversation on current issues and build bridges between various ethnocultural communities.

In partnership with Inspirit Foundation and Flemingdon Park Library
