Wanted: Your Stories

Wanted: Your Photos, Stories, and Oral Histories

EGphoto01d

The Elizabeth Gardens Community Art Project is an artistic effort to capture the growth and change that has occurred in one community from the early 1950s to the present. The area under study is bounded by Lakeshore Road, QEW, Burloak Drive, and Appleby Line.

The Project’s aim is to collect photos, stories and oral histories from current and former residents and business owners.  Using these reference materials, a body of art work will be created (informed by a sense place, meaning, and identity).

Once completed, the goal is to display the art within the community and then at a regional art gallery.  At the end of the project, original reference materials (photos, written documents, and oral histories) will be donated to an archive collection (if possible) in order to preserve the community’s history.

The EGArtProject website will be the primary source for updates.

If you are interested in participating in this project then please send me an email at fcsdstudio@gmail.com.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Chris Erskine, Artist
