Bleecker Coop Memorial Project

Welcome to our gallery of images from the Bleecker Coop Memorial Project.

We've begun meeting to tell stories, brainstorm, and explore visual representations of our ideas using oil pastel, mixed media, foam plate printing on fabric and paper, and collage. As you scroll down, you'll find a series of solo and multiple pieces produced by project contributors. This arts-based participatory research is what will lead us to identifying themes and visual motif, and ultimately, the mosaic design.

All Bleecker Coop members are invited to join in as we continue our creative exploration on Monday December 5, at 7:30 pm. All materials and refreshments will be provided.

Red Dress Productions is proud to lead this project in partnership with Bleecker Coop. Our team includes lead artist Anna Camilleri, co-lead artist Tristan R. Whiston, community artist Heidi Cho, ceramic artist Enrique Campos, photographer Katie Yealland, events and outreach coordinator Ryan Hayward, and intern Andrew Henderson.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the citizens of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council, and the Cooperative Housing Federation of Toronto.
