Media Advisory: Mayor Miller to join youth in viewing My City My Art exhibition
Mayor David Miller and Rita Davies, Executive Director, Toronto Culture will join youth whose work is on display in the My City My Art multi-media exhibition, at a reception to celebrate the artistic accomplishments and successes of these first-time artists, designers, photographers and poets.

Date: Thursday, April 26
Time: 5 - 6:30 p.m. (official remarks 5:30 p.m.)
Location: Toronto City Hall Rotunda, 100 Queen St. W.

The My City My Art exhibition was made possible through Toronto’s Community Safety Plan. Since 2005, Toronto Culture, together with its community partners, has created and supported more than 30 innovative and diverse cultural programs for young people in Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods. A key component of these programs has been the finished product - a publication, performance or display of the art - many of which will be featured in My City My Art.

Two youth, Khyati Gupta (Malvern Zine Project) and Christian Carrizo (Downsview Mural Project), will speak about their experiences participating in the cultural programs.

In addition to more than 100 works of art will be on display, and a series of performances from youth in Toronto Culture affiliated programs will highlight the evening’s festivities. Performances include: Youth Arts Movement Jazz Quartet, Lakeshore Arts; Dub Poetry Reading by Memo Cabrera, Urban Arts; Dance and drumming, Gabriel Dumont Thunderbirds; and Stiltwalkers, Swizzlestick Theatre.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
