TOMORROW SHOULD BE OURS – TORONTO PART 4


Minto

The final work produced during my stay in Toronto was this banner in Yorkville.  The banner was produced after group sessions with Oasis Skateboard Factory a remarkable alternative school design program at Scadding Court Community Centre.  The group and I worked together to produce texts relating to issues of urban change and gentrification, arriving at the final text ‘Tomorrow should be ours.’

In addition to the banner project, using photography by the group I produced a series of 4 posters splitting the ‘Tomorrow should be ours’ text into separate words and allowing for different permutations of the text.

Big thanks to Craig and Lauren and all at OSF and to Darren for being my guide and to Minto for generously sponsoring the project.
