The documentary project Accidental Parkland collaborates with the University of Toronto’s New College and Daniels School of Architecture, Landscape and Design to host a ten-day event. Starting with an exhibition of the documentary’s multi-artist Instagram feed, it also features visual exhibitions of art and design work, a speaker series, documentary screenings, student installations, and cultural events. It’s a celebration of urban nature with attention to Indigenous histories and protocols for understanding land. The shared value of these green oases amidst all the pavement is only rising and it’s time to embrace the gorgeous nature available within this city. Come open your mind to how these spaces may be improved and how they can provide even greater benefit to Toronto’s many diverse communities.
