Event Details

Storytelling seeks to shift the mediation of contemporary art away from conventional modes of interpreting and informing to narrating and embodying through weekly walks and conversations. An intergenerational and multilingual group of storytellers share personal insights and experiences of the city as they guide visitors through the Exhibition’s installations, research, and political perspectives. Taking us along hidden river routes, through archives, and into speculative futures, storytellers bring submerged narratives related to Toronto’s shifting shoreline to the surface.

Meeting Place: Storytelling Sessions will begin near the Archtop Cafe at Small Arms Inspection Building.

Storytelling Sessions will take place at both Small Arms Inspection Building and 259 Lake Shore Blvd E each Saturday and Sunday from 12-2pm. There is no registration required for these sessions.

Event Details

In Six Chairs in a Circle, artist Haruko Okano invites Ayumi Goto, Cheryl Trudeau, Elwood Jimmy, and Peter Morin to explore ideas of collectivity based on desire, love, relation-building, empathy, collaboration, and generosity. Learning from human and non-human living networks and systems, each practitioner shares knowledge, experience, and methods of gathering through differences and conflicted narratives deriving from the complexities of sharing an intercultural landscape. By exploring methods of non-hierarchical collectivity, this conversation aims to deepen our understandings of various value systems, and shift the way in which we come together in intimate spaces – at home, the workplace, and other social settings. The circle will open up for participants to join the conversation and evoke a sense of interconnectedness and belonging.

We invite you to join us for a reception following the event!
