Community Art - "In Our Shoes"
In Our Shoes is a community art program which reduces barriers and access to art for youth living in marginalized circumstances. Through an unconventional and urban medium of sneaker art together with art installation, the program fosters creative expression while offering a space for artistic community reflection and building. In Our Shoes was the 2016 Artist in Residence Program at Power Plant Contemporary Gallery, and since it's inception in 2014 it has served more than 200 youth through successful partnership with organizations such as Pathways to Education Canada, Arts Starts and Vans Canada. In Our Shoes was the 2017 recepient of the Toronto Arts Council Community Arts Grant.
