ABOUT MY CITY MY SIX
My City My Six is a participatory public art project that reveals Toronto and its residents in celebration of Canada 150, six words at a time. From January through May 2017, Torontonians of all ages and backgrounds participated in workshops and submitted stories that tell something essential about themselves in six words.
Out of the over 4,000 submissions that showed the diverse lives that collectively make up this great city, 150 of these stories were selected by a diverse and interdisciplinary jury which included: Poet Laureate, Anne Michaels, alongside Donald C. Ainslie (Canada 150 Representative), Patrick Walters, Annie Wong, Shelley Hamilton and Tanya Neumeyer. This dynamic jury selected stories that will appear in the city-wide exhibit on public spaces including buses, subways, streetcars, transit shelters, transit posters, and billboards.
