My City My Six

My City My Six is a participatory public art project that will reveal Toronto and its residents in celebration of Canada 150, six words at a time. We want to hear your story. Share something essential about yourself in six words. Your story may be selected to be part of a city-wide exhibition in the fall of 2017, showing the diverse lives that collectively make up this great city at this moment in time!

Lakeshore Arts and the Toronto Public Library are proud to present a series of creative writing workshops in collaboration with spoken word artist and arts educator Patrick Walters and assisted by Amanda Miceli. Workshops are drop-in and open to all ages. Each workshop will be broken into four parts: Identity, First Creation, Feedback, and Guided Creation.

About the Artist: Patrick Walters is a spoken word artist and arts educator who has spent over three years professionally using poetry to place emphasis on self expression, mental health and ways to improve our communities. Through workshops, Spoken word showcases and audio/visual content, Patrick has dedicated himself to the pursuit of his goals for himself and his growing community.
