Bring to Light is a stencil light painting workshop for Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute students. During 12 weeks of workshops, the participants will design stencils inspired by images that they feel close cultural connections to. These stencils will be used to create light paintings in Flemingdon Park and Thorncliffe Park. The neighbourhoods will be lit with the students’ stencils, which will integrate the concept of the students’ place in the city and in the artistic expression of the city. The project will finish with an exhibition in MGCI.
