We are pleased to announce our successful application to the Toronto Arts Council for their ‘Artists in the Library’ Program, through which we will be creating an artist residency and offering community animation workshops at the new Scarborough Civic Center Library (set to open in spring 2015) from September through November 2015!
A part of this program a TAIS animator will be utilizing the resources of the library, researching the historic highlights of the area – including its parks, architecture, culture and people. This research will be translated into photocopies, drawings and sketches which participants in the community will be invited to animate, through workshops with several TAIS animators. The result: a collage mapping the history of the neighbourhood!
We are extremely thrilled about this opportunity, so watch this space for more information as the project develops!
