The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea Town Hall Information Sessions
The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea is a site-specific exhibition and festival presented by Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto Mississauga, in partnership with the City of Mississauga. Taking place in Clarkson's Southdown Area from September 14-23, 2018, the project is designed to expand perspectives on climate change through artistic practice, cultural inquiry, and community activation. The exhibition will be complemented by a series of live events--performances, workshops, panel discussions, and film screenings--along with the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, a year-long public engagement program featuring a website, bi-monthly broadsheet publication series, a three-volume book series, a digital platform, and a city-wide public education program.
A contemporary art project of this scale is the first of its kind in Mississauga. The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea is an invitation to the city's publics to create memorable encounters with art, in the common struggle for a healthy, vibrant future.
In preparation for the exhibition, Blackwood Gallery and the City of Mississauga are holding two Town Hall Information Sessions on May 9 at Harding Estate. These meetings are open to all residents and businesses in the area, and present an opportunity to learn more about the project, receive updates, give input, and ask questions.
RSVP via Eventbrite. All welcome.
