Alexmuir Park RESIDENCy
The Spirit of Our Park was a project through the Toronto Arts Council Arts in the Parks program. Shadowland did a week residency in Alexmuir Park, Scarborough, July 9 to 15. We had a great time working with the enthusiastic student volunteers and wonderful community members who came out and defined the spirit of their beautiful park through art-making, performance and Indigenous teachings. Local seniors taught our Tai Chi puppet its graceful moves, beginner stilt-walkers reached great heights and the final parade was full of colour and spectacle. They did all this within a week! Thanks to the Cllr. Chin Lee's office and the Roseland Taxpayers Association for their wonderful support and hospitality.
