A Common Table: Performative Picnic

At A Common Table last Friday, we celebrated the end of the summer we have spent together singing, sewing, playing, building, making and picnicking in Broadacres Park. This performative picnic was attended by 142 guests and neighbours from from The West Mall, Mabelle Avenue, COSTI Immigrant Services, The Arab Community Centre of Toronto and across the city. Thanks to Monica Gutierrez for the photos!

MABELLEarts will be back with projects in Mabelle and Broadacres Park in 2018 - follow MABELLEarts here or on facebook, instagram & twitter to look for updates in the new year!
