Call for Art Submissions for "Words on The Wall"
WORDS ON THE WALL: A FUNDRAISER FOR PLAQUES FOR THE 19TH CENTURY PATIENT - BUILT WALL
Help us put Words on the Wall
The Psychiatric Survivor Archives of Toronto (PSAT) is giving out bricks to serve as the basis for a work of art. Artists and groups are welcome to use the medium of their choice. Works will be displayed and sold as part of a silent auction to help raise funds for historic plaques to commemorate the history of the patient-built wall at the Queen Street Site of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
Words on the Wall will be held on April 21, 2010 at the Gladstone Hotel in conjunction with This is Not a Reading Series. There will be a wall tour led by historian Geoffrey Reaume, followed by a relaunch of the 2nd edition of his book, Remembrance of Patients Past (University of Toronto Press). We will end the evening with a silent auction of the bricks donated by artists.
To request a brick or for more information, please email
email@example.com or phone 416-661-9975 or 416-809-1013.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: APRIL 7, 2010
