A Common Table: Reflections on Summer 2017

What is a park? What does it do? Who is it for? When people are in need, how can parks help?

This summer showed us that our parks can be places of welcoming, of getting to know one another and becoming friends. Parks can be places where we sing the songs, make miniatures that recall the landscapes of our childhoods. Parks can be places where we share foods that remind us of our mothers and grandmothers.

We’re proud to share our reflections on Summer 2017, including work by over 25 artists and over 1300 community members from across Etobicoke and beyond. Read and listen at: www.summer2017.mabellearts.ca
