In Person  |  Storytelling

Join us at Arsenal Contemporary Art Toronto for Storytelling sessions led by Emily DiCarlo.

Storytelling sessions combine modes of conventional interpretation with artist-led, narrative and embodied responses. Storytellers offer weekly guided sessions, informal conversations, and spot tours to intergenerational audiences at TBA’s main sites. Sharing personal insights and experiences of the city as well as offering perspectives on the artworks within the exhibitions, they guide visitors through the research and artist practises that form What Water Knows, The Land Remembers.

Weekly Schedule
Fridays: 11am–12pm
Saturdays: 11am–12pm and 2–3pm

Note: For the last weekend of the 2022 Biennial, Storytelling will be available on Friday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 5th.
