Community: A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. A feeling of fellowship with others as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals…but not necessarily.
The Project Original collective explores a compilation of ideas, thoughts and stories, with a focus on Alexandra Park. How do we identify with our communities? What does it feel like to fit in versus not? What happens when outsiders want to change that community? What does “revitalization” really mean? Join us in our search to answer these beautiful, complicated questions, spray painting blank walls, jumping fences, and encountering the police on the way.

An ensemble style program to train young people in the work of arts facilitation. Artists of this program gain a diversity of experience both as active creators and performers while facilitating art making among other young community members. This is an accessible peer-to-peer learning experience designed to engage young people who have yet to consider the performing arts as a viable creative outlet. The past two years of this program have been resident within Toronto’s Alexandra Park
