Arts Etobicoke

 

Arts Etobicoke's mission is to engage all people in West Toronto with the arts and artists in their own community. The organization fosters and sustains local arts activities by involving special and diverse audiences, it increases accessibility of the arts for residents of Etobicoke, and it creates broad community awareness of local arts organizations and artists through collaboration with community partners.

Inspired by Article 6 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the new "Everyone. Everywhere" mural project is presented in partnership with Creative Village Studio, Red Dress Productions and StreetARToronto.

Connecting human rights and community arts, this project aims to illuminate contributions (artistic and otherwise) of differently-abled people. The mural will marry the bold, colourful and emotional work of the artists working at Creative Village Studio with a powerful visual statement in support of human rights awareness.

This collaborative mural project is led by artists Anna Camilleri and Tristan Whiston of Red Dress Productions, a Toronto based professional arts company that specializes in working with / in communities on public art projects.


After welcoming feedback from the broader community through two public consultations, Red Dress Productions conducted a series of workshops with artists at the Creative Village Studio, a gallery in Islington Village that provides supportive space for artists of varying ability.

The project has also engaged Adrenne Finnikin a youth apprentice to assist Red Dress Productions.  Andrenne Finnikin, also known as Dreena, has explored numerous medias such drawing, painting, African drumming, photography, dance and drama. She has devoted over 5 years in the community arts field and has showcased her work in City Hall, Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, AWOL Gallery, Papermill Gallery and The Harbourfront Centre.
