Calling all Toronto Residents!
Diaspora Dialogues is embarking on a new project called “Hello, Neighbour” — a three tiered community engagement piece that begins with you and ends with a performance on February 23rd at the Heliconian Hall.
We are looking for residents to submit a short content piece animating a favourite element of the city. This could be an intersection or a neighbourhood; a restaurant, a building, a park, we’re not picky! Creativity in your submissions is encouraged: you can write a poem or make an audio or video recording, you can even mail us a plasticine sculpture if you’re so inclined.
Chosen creations and their creators will be profiled on our website, on tokmagazine.ca, and social media channels.
Six artists — poets, writers and playwrights alike — will then create a new artistic piece based on the chosen submissions and then perform their new work on February 23rd.
Those who are interested can send electronic submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org or can mail submissions to 14 Prince Arthur Ave, Suite 301, Toronto ON.
The deadline is January 28.
