Printing workshops teach youth about East York’s Indigenous Peoples history
First Story Toronto and The inPrint Collective are proud to be partnering on a series of printmaking workshops highlighting the indigenous history of the East York area in Toronto.
From May through October 2017, the Cultural Hotspot shines a spotlight on arts, culture and the community in East York/the east end, inspiring new ideas about where culture thrives in Toronto. The City of Toronto has partnered with us to create our SPARK project entitled The Inter-Museum Print Exchange: Todmorden Mills. Other projects include visual arts, music, dance, youth mentorship and employment, local festivals and more. Projects like ours, and the legacy Cultural Loops Guide, will enable the local community and visitors to discover Hotspot neighbourhoods like East York to experience arts, culture, fantastic food, heritage and parkland.
Wyandot multi-media artist Catherine Tammaro will facilitate workshops for Indigenous youth aged 14 to 17. The workshops will begin with a historic walking tour of the neighbourhood centred around Todmorden Mills, facilitated by First Story members. The relief printing sessions will be supported by artists from the inPrint Collective.
The free youth workshops are to be held on August 12, August 20, August 27 and September 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Interested participants should contact inPrint at email@example.com.
A public celebration and print exhibition will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2 p.m. at Todmorden Mills, 67 Pottery Rd, Toronto.
The program, a Cultural Hotspot SPARK project in partnership with the City of Toronto and supported by The Japanese Paper Place and Speedball Art Products, is the second in a series of workshops that will be held at a number of Toronto’s Historic Sites through to 2018. The final goal is an exchange of prints between sites, contributing to a broader and more inclusive narrative of Toronto’s history that focuses on Indigenous stories. Toronto.ca/culturalhotspot
