FEETPRINT is a multi-layered storytelling project that engaged artists and residents of The Esplanade (Esplanadians of all ages and cultures) in a co-creative process to design over 150 shoes throughout the summer of 2017.
This project offered participants an opportunity to share their personal stories to one another, and brought our diverse voices together: each participant were asked three questions as a source of inspiration for their design:
Who am I? Where do I belong? How do I behave?
This artist-led project is inspired by Markd't Celebrating Art on Sneakers.
Shoes were designed through a series of artist-led workshops in partnership with Market Lane Public School, St Lawrence Daycare Co-Op, and The Toronto Public Library - St Lawrence Branch.
The growing collection of shoes was displayed at Jamii’s event throughout the summer:
>> Multicultural Day Celebration (June 27);
>> Jamii’s movie nights (June 17, July 22, August 26);
>> Culture Days (Sept 30);
>> Scotiabank Waterfront Toronto Marathon (Oct 22)
Estimated total audience of 3000+
