GTA Mentoring Program: Contradictions and Absurdities in Life and Art

I grew up in the United Arab Emirates during the 1980s and early 1990s and moved to North America when I was thirteen because of the first Gulf War.

Hello, Neighbour

Join us on February 23rd at Heliconian Hall for “Hello, Neighbour” — a three tiered community engagement piece that begins with residents of Toronto and ends with live performances of new works by six artists! Hello, Neighbour began with residents of Toronto submitting short content pieces animating a favourite element of the city; an intersection or a neighbourhood; a restaurant, a building, a park . . .
