To create this gallery, we called on emerging and established artists from the GTA who embrace, challenge and re-imagine Blackness through varying mediums, to showcase their work through an Afrofuturist lens alongside the history of Toronto from the Toronto Reference Library archives.
As a learning opportunity, and a way for artists to integrate their works with technology, selected artists were invited to a workshop where they will learn the process behind creating an augmented reality experience during Culture Days.
A special thank you to the City of Toronto, Ryerson University Transmedia Zone, Toronto Reference Library, Culture Days and the St. Jamestown Public Library for their support.
Rhodes Thompson-Chase, Graphic Designer; Zviko Mhakayakora, Curator; Sapphire Woods, Researcher; Lequanne Collins-Bacchus, Digital Lead.
Look out for the gallery on the TTC in Spring 2020!
