Curious Sounds

Inspired by the fact that the average human attention span lasts 8.25 seconds, Curious Sounds is a collection of small bursts of light, colour, and words that explore how time shapes and defines the world, especially from a Black perspective. Comprising three parts, which mirror the arc of a life - the Learning, the Living, and the Leaving - the book is a series of fleeting moments and visuals that help us to discover the beauty in our own chaos.

dis/mantle : The Rebuild

As this chapter of Dis/Mantle closes, we now focus on rebuilding a new narrative for our future.  Let’s take what we can learn from those who came before us and led the way. Freedom seekers like Mrs. Louisa Pipkin, who travelled to Canada in perilous conditions, and freedom fighters like the many abolitionists who worked to ensure that people made it here safely, inspire us to take care of each other on our journeys and to establish strong foundations for future generations.

The ReBuild is an experiential event that focuses on the importance of working together to lift each other up to new levels, while also reminding us that taking care of ourselves is a fundamental necessity. The Rebuild is a youth focussed family-friendly event that will be engaging for all. Through art, music, poetry, and dance, we will explore methods of self-care, learn ways to creatively express ourselves, and celebrate our accomplishments and resiliency.

Read(In)

This installation is a response to the drastic rise in banned books in the United States. Spread across these desks you'll encounter books challenged for featuring stories about race, gender, inequalities and inclusion. They have been banned from schools, libraries and other public institutions.

Inspired by the sit-ins of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, Toronto artist and chef Roger Mooking created Read(In) as a response in solidarity with the equity-deserving characters, communities, and inclusive themes these books bring to the forefront. You'll also find books that inspire us to engage and celebrate diverse histories and perspectives.

You are welcome to sit, read, read aloud, and engage with the books. What books resonate most with you? What questions do they inspire?
