Come join us to explore our community through the use of digital technology. No experience necessary and everyone is welcome. Every month we will have two workshops that you can participate in as well as a new Augmented Reality activation for you to explore in the mall! The workshops and augmentations all focus around community involvement and the theme of “What is Etobicoke to you?”
Arts Etobicoke in partnership with AR expert and multidisciplinary lead-artist Luke Garwood will offer community members and local artists the opportunity to experience Augmented Reality in various ways and disciplines at the Cloverdale Mall Hub as part of the Year of Public Art initiative by the City of Toronto. This year of programming starts in Feb 2021 and uses community-created content to develop 12 AR augmentations that will be placed throughout Cloverdale Mall, adding one new experience monthly throughout 2021, like an “AR scavenger hunt”. The program features 2 workshops monthly on AR creation and exploration with local BIPOC artists in addition to Mr. Garwood.
To find out more about the project please sign up for our Cloverdale Hub Information Session with Luke Garwood on Tuesday, February 9 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm online via Zoom.
This workshop is led by Luke Garwood, one of the 4 lead artists on our Augmented Reality in the Village of Islington Project.
