Join us for a walk through the neighborhood of Parkdale while visiting the multi-site exhibition, The Architecture of Care. The tour will start at The Public Studio at 2pm, followed by a stop at the Feminist Art Gallery, and finishing at the Margin of Eras Gallery. We will also be meeting activists from Parkdale Organize who will talk to us about their efforts organizing and resisting against illegal evictions in Parkdale. The walk will be punctuated by descriptions of these activities and sites from the maps made by artists Kristina Guison and Tzazná Miranda Leal (featured at the Margin of Eras Gallery) will punctuate the walk.
If you haven't seen the show yet, now's your chance. Come stroll with us and experience the neighbourhood.

The Architecture of Care, an exhibition spanning across three galleries in Parkdale namely - The Feminist Art Gallery (FAG), The Public, and Margin of Eras Gallery- addresses the role of place-making, the influence of the environment on one's identity, and how people make Parkdale their home. Walk around the neighbourhood to different sites and see how the selected artists will also explore the ways in which people take ownership of a neighborhood through instances of care, compassion, dialogue, reciprocal relationships, tenderness, and resistance.
This exhibition is supported by the Toronto Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
