SummerWorks: Health & Safety Notes

SummerWorks: Health & Safety Notes

Workman Arts is a proud Community Partner for the SummerWorks 2020 project Health & Safety Notes

Colourful messages written in duct tape adorn the sides of public and private buildings throughout the neighbourhood of Parkdale and wander down Queen West. Created in collaboration with organizations and residents in the Parkdale community, these temporary public art installations help people remember, be seen, and communicate their fears, wonderings, anxieties, and hopes in a COVID-19 reality. The notes allow us to speak to each other while maintaining physical distance, and are a way of staying connected during a time when connecting with one another can seem strange and fleeting. The messages installed at Workman Arts, at 651 Dufferin Street, have been written in collaboration with Workman Artists.

Installations will be added continuously throughout the month of August. Follow the progress of this project using the map on the Health & Safety Notes page on the SummerWorks website, on SummerWorks’ Instagram stories, or by safely exploring the Parkdale and Queen West neighbourhood.
