ABOUT THE SCARBOROUGH SIGN
The Scarborough Sign is a community-developed public art initiative that showcases and brings together Scarborough’s many artistic communities through events, workshops, and a mobile art installation.
From June to October 2018, a life-sized SCARBOROUGH sign (36’ wide x 5’ tall) will travel to six different neighbourhoods across north and central Scarborough. At each location, the sign will engage local residents in multi-disciplinary arts events, accessible workshops, and site-specific art activities involving different art forms from textile arts, spoken word and poetry, calligraphy, and photography. All activities are free and open to the public.
The Scarborough Sign is produced in partnership with the City of Toronto’s Cultural Hotspot project.
