A Collaboration between the First Nations School of Toronto, New College, the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design and the Accidental Parkland project.
Curated by Dan Berman, Co-Curated and Designed by Jeremy Macfarlane
Join us for this unique convergence of perspectives on Toronto’s ravines and rivers and the changing urban environments they are situated in. The documentary project Accidental Parkland collaborates with the University of Toronto’s New College and Daniels School of Architecture, Landscape and Design to host a ten-day event. Starting with an exhibition of the documentary’s multi-artist Instagram feed, it also features visual exhibitions of art and design work, a speaker series, documentary screenings, student installations, including Beadwork by First Nation School of Toronto, and cultural events. It’s a celebration of urban nature with attention to Indigenous histories and protocols for understanding land.
