We Are Lawrence Exhibit – Launch Party

Posted by | November 10, 2014 | News | No Comments

For the month of November, select transit shelters, a billboard and the windows of a building along Lawrence Ave. will be transformed into an outdoor photography gallery showcasing the photographs taken by We Are Lawrence participants of local community members.

Thousands of people travel through Lawrence Avenue East each day, streaming past strip malls and industrial buildings by car, foot or the 54-bus. We Are Lawrence Avenue humanizes this significant avenue, engaging youth and telling the story of shop owners, community elders and leaders, connecting passersby’s with the area and celebrating it through photography.

November 10th! Today! There is a walk with artists at 2:30 pm at Lawrence Avenue East and Pharmacy on the southwest corner. The walk will be followed by an opening party at the McGregor Community Centre (2231 Lawrence Ave E) at 4 PM.

I invite you to come out to to meet the photographers, the mentors and everyone involved in this project.
