What a wonderful day in the drop-in today! One long time PARC staff member told me it was his favorite day in a long time. In order to celebrate Halloween we created the longest story ever that included ghosts, cemeteries, severed hands and the celebration of Parkdale as a place where people care for one another! As well, there was dancing, cake, conversation and a good time was had by all!
About Making Room
Making Room Community Arts is a radically inclusive, inter-disciplinary arts company that brings people and communities together to make art, form personal connections, and become more engaged in their community. We do this by creating spaces of reflection, openness, and celebration in the neighbourhood of Parkdale in the West End of Toronto. Every year, we bring together hundreds of people who would otherwise never meet and cross linguistic, cultural, religious and socio-economic barriers through collaborative art-making and community celebrations.
