The Toronto Biennial of Art will celebrate the closing of the 2022 edition with a family- and youth- friendly BBQ for neighbours and those further afield. Enjoy great food and an array of participatory activities including Storytelling tours of the exhibition at the Small Arms Inspection Building, interactive walks focusing on the building’s history and the Indigenous history of its grounds, as well as pop-up stations with hands-on, intergenerational art-making workshops. This event also marks the official launch of A Treaty Guide for Torontonians—an activity-based publication by the Talking Treaties Collective examining the complex intercultural roots of treaty relationships in the place we now call Toronto. Lakeview Farmers’ Market will also be on site with stalls featuring sustainable and organic products, which provide an important source of income for local farmers, growers, producers, and artisans.

This event is co-presented in partnership with Art Metropole, Creative Hub 1352, Eagle Spirits of the Great Waters, Jumblies Theatre + Arts, Lakeview Ratepayers, and Small Arms Inspection Building, with the generous support of FRAM + Slokker, and the City of Mississauga.
