The Place of Belonging

by: KIN Collective

Join KIN Collective for their family-friendly collaborative art installation, “The Place of Belonging,” on May 4 at the Lower Gallery of the Toronto Centre for the Arts, and is free to the public with RSVP.

On the gallery walls, attendees will have the opportunity to anonymously share personal stories on the topics of being a newcomer to Canada, how it feels being in transition, searching for new identities, and finding a place to call home.

But the narrative doesn’t have to focus solely on immigration; there are many experiences that can be shared based on the theme of belonging. Kids will be encouraged to participate too, to create poems, drawings, and collage.

“The Place of Belonging” runs concurrently with KIN Collective’s exhibition Construction of Liminal Space by KIN members Jieun June Kim and Marina Nazarova.

About the Collective
KIN is an emerging collective that explores the dual identity of immigrants in Canada. Members Jieun June Kim and Marina Nazarova create artwork that explores unusual perspectives and abstract spaces. They invite audiences to observe the subtle alterations from familiar to unknown and to experience the shifts and uncertainties of immigrant life.
