In June 2022 five communities came together on Toronto Island to celebrate birds and their return to our skies.
A collaboration between Shadowland Theatre, Birds Canada, MabelleARTS, Thorncliffe Park Women's Committee, Toronto Island SUP and the Waterfront BIA, Migration Celebration honoured the role birds play in our lives and ecosystems.
Shadowland Theatre artists, Indigenous teachers and musicians lead a series of weekly workshops in each community to bring awareness of the diverse bird life that swoops into Toronto every year.
The celebration culminated in a spectacular parade that wound its way from Centre Island to St Andrew by-the-Lake Church for a final flock flutter followed by festive feathered fun.
Check out our photos from the event below taken by, the talented, Hannah Mittelstaedt.
