Riverside Mural Launch ‘Tkaranto Past/ Tkaranto Future’
August 27 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm| Free
Riverside has a new mural celebrating Indigenous heritage, culture and art! Please join in our free community celebration on Sunday, August 27th.
‘Tkaranto Past/Tkaranto Future’, was created by Indigenous artists Odinamaad (Isaac Narcisco Weber), and Chief Ladybird (Nancy King), along with Indigenous youth and Traditional Wisdom Keeper Philip Cote. The artists’ creation is rich in symbolism, stories and connections – from intricate designs rooted in nature, to the feather holding Toronto’s urban setting.
Experience the mural, hear from Philip Cote and local BIA and political representatives, meet the artists, and enjoy Indigenous food, music, dance and craft workshops. Activities will include Traditional Drumming and singing by Shandra Spears Bombay, Hoop Dancing by Nimkii Osawamick, Medicine Pouch Craft Workshops by Tammy Enosse, and catering and refreshments by Suzanne Smoke and Dark Horse Espresso.
Thanks to the key partners who supported this project: the Government of Canada, City of Toronto, StreetARToronto, the Government of Ontario, and Riverside BIA. Thank you also to Woodgreen Community Services and Sherwin Williams.
