Project Topic: Vacancy
Project Description: In collaboration with Loren Naji, we are creating an art appreciation group consisting of community members of all ages who want to learn about the new insurgence of art in Collinwood in a friendly environment. We will meet for 10 weeks during Walk All Over Waterloo events and the Waterloo Arts Festival. Each evening will begin with a brief artist talk with light refreshments. The group then will go to different Waterloo Galleries and/or artist studios to experience and discuss the artwork together. The purpose of the group is to demystify art and create a stronger community.
Community Engagement Strategy: We will do a postcard mailing to every household in Collinwood as well as have a presence at community events that are not art related to get to those outside of the art community. We want to engage the long time Collinwood residents and their families with the arts community so we can enjoy and improve the area together.
