Project Inkwell

project inkwell-timeanddesire

The slide on the screen in the photo displays Talk 2 Strangers’ raw beginning in 2008.

Timeanddesire was invited to speak at Project Inkwell this past April, where we focused on the creation of one of our projects “Talk 2 Strangers”. Our main intent was to show those in attendance how an inspired idea can change, develop and evolve, and how you can take rejection of your idea as an opportunity to improve it.

This winter we completed a workshop in two different schools in the Peel region as part of the Art Gallery of Mississauga’s Roots and Branches Program. Working with grade 7s and 8s, we began the workshop with an introduction of art interventions from around the world.

It’s been a busy past couple of weeks, but our efforts have finally bore fruit!

We kicked off the weekend by installing 5 works for Art of the Danforth. We’re both really excited to be a part of the festival; there are tons of great works to be experienced and I highly recommend you check it out. The festival runs from May 20 to June 10, 2012.
