"The Stories The Wind Carries" in Toronto

“The Stories the Wind Carries” is a project that connects the communities of Toronto, Wawa, Michipicoten First Nation, Pikangikum First Nation, and Wolfe Island. Community members are invited to co-create a series of portraits of fellow neighbours through creative writing, photography and visual arts.

The project took place in Toronto in February 2020 and more than 50 people participated.

On February 8th, participants showed their portraits to their "chosen person" during a get-together at Performing Arts Lodge. A beautiful evening, warm and welcoming.

The 22 portraits created are displayed at the Four Seasons PErforming Arts Centre on February 13th and 15th 2020, and will be presented in Crombie Park the first 2 weeks of May 2020 as part of CONTACT, Photography Festival.

Artistic and Production Team: Isorine Marc, Andrew Patterson, Dan Bergeron, Zarita Adhiambo, Angel Narick.
