How can we get better at recognizing the contributions and achievements of individuals who were raised in Scarborough and surrounding communities?
This project will reconnect the local community with some of its many extraordinary individuals. It will do this by displaying life-sized images within the Scarborough Town Centre—itself an important community gathering place for more than 40 years. Selected individuals will also be represented through photos, conversations, archival images and texts offered in collaboration with local newspaper the “Scarborough Mirror.” Scarborough and its surrounding communities have expanded quickly. So this will be a meeting ground—a way of re-establishing connections with residents, educating visitors, and celebrating the achievements of this region’s pioneers and rising stars. Let’s strengthen key bonds through communication and emotional connection while reflecting on the successes and accomplishments of Scarborough’s people. “Reconnected STC” invites a journey to a place of remembering. Travel to a place within oneself while recognizing the achievements of so many neighbours, friends and ancestors.
Extended Project Details: This project will be on view until October 13th. Open within TTC hours.
