April 5 – 25
Opening Reception: April 5
Remembering You is a multidisciplinary exhibition featuring work produced by South Etobicoke community members who have loved and lost people who use drugs. In the midst of the overdose crisis, the project offers a space to grieve, remember and pay homage to loved ones through drawing, painting, writing and other mediums. Presented in partnership with the LAMP Adult Programs team, Remembering You invites audiences to reflect on the subject of drug use from a place of compassionate inquiry, considering the impact of stigma and discrimination on the lives of drug users as well as the socio-political factors that contribute to precarious health and housing conditions.
A limited run of zines featuring prints of the work displayed in Lakeshore Arts’ Community Project Space are free and available on site!
