Getting To Know Our Neighbours at The Gallery

The Gallery at Mason Studio | 91 Pelham Ave, Toronto
November 14 through December 11, 2023

an art exhibition in collaboration with Making Art Making Change
and Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood and Community Health Centre

Inspired by the artwork made by participants in Long Life: Positive HIV Stories, an art project directed by Jonathan Morgan (2003, Cape Town, South Africa) Making Art Making Change (MAMC) facilitated eight two-hour participatory workshops for clients of Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood and Community Health Centre (DPNCHC).
Participants from the DPNCHC +55 community group met weekly to share their stories, lived experiences, memories, and identity in their artwork. Each participant traced their body maps on corrugated cardboard and began to add rich details, textures, imagery, and text as they enthusiastically developed their visual storytelling. Using artist-quality materials, the group built their own “body of work” each week, adding layers of meaning while exploring different techniques.

Visit The Gallery at Mason Studio Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm daily, to experience these incredible art pieces.
