Event Description

Toronto-based artist Jennie Suddick and urban planner Sara Udow will be considering forts and tree houses to look at how communities can engage with city planning to meet the needs of citizens. To do this, they’ll be asking about people’s dream tree houses, both real and imagined, part of a hands-on series called Creative Placemaking Workshops at Open Space.

Join us for the Creative Placemaking Workshop, held on Thursday, June 22 from 3 to 6 pm. Participants will be working with both Suddick and Udow to question the role of the arts in building a city. They will encourage the participants to explore creativity to re-envision a space in the city, bringing together architects, developers, city staff, and community members who will be on-site to input ideas.

A second free event, Tree House Workshop will take place on Tuesday, June 20 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. Participants will be asked to recall unrealized childhood plans for tree houses and other forts. Through interactive discussion and hands-on collaboration with participants, Suddick will help participants recapture those dormant tree house plans and turn them into clay architectural models and detailed drawings. Participants’ creations will inspire Suddick to create her own paper sculptural models, which will be shown as a part of The Tree House Project exhibition that will be held at Open Space in the summer of 2018.

Open Space encourages that those interested register in advance at [email protected], as space is limited.
