Where Do You See Yourself?

Family workshops in the park
Event, in English and in French, Park Baile, 4 June 2023, 1pm to 4pm

This first Sunday of June, CCA is hosting drop-in workshops in Park Baile for youth and families. These workshops focus on Blackness and Indigenous identity in the built environment and everyday life. Converging at the intersection of space and identity, the activities are an opportunity for participants to explore their cultural heritages as well as how it can validate their experiences within the world around them.

How does your block sustain community connections? Vanessa Owusu-Piameng invites you to reflect on the changes around your neighbourhood and how it impacts your community and rituals.

How do you slow down? What do you see? Niki Mulder prompts you to take a moment to identify hidden gems in your environment through an observational zine making session.

Join us anytime from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., on the lawn in front of CCA’s entrance, for printing, collage and writing workshops suitable for children 7 years old and older. In case of rain, the activities will be moved inside the museum to the Shaughnessy house.
