We'e very excited to bring in the new year with a community engaged project with the 519--Toronto's LGBTTQ community centre.

The 519 Mosaic is a new community-engaged, hands-on, large-scale mosaic project that is for/with participants of all ages, and abilities drawn from the diverse community members and program participants that call the 519 Community Centre home. Our goal is to create an original mosaic to be permanently installed as an outdoor public artwork at the 519 Community Centre.

519 Mosaic will be led by Anna Camilleri and Tristan R. Whiston of Red Dress Productions (RDP), along with three equity-seeking Youth Apprentices. We'll work with community members at all stages of development from concept, to design, to build. No prior experience or knowledge is required to participate (we mean it!).

Our first public meeting--open to anyone who is interested in being a part of creating a new public artwork in Toronto--is taking place at the 519 Community Centre on Wednesday February 3, from 7 to 9pm. Snacks and art supplies provided. 519 Community Centre is located at 519 Church Street, just a few doors north of Wellesley Street.
