In the Pit: The Untold Stories of Toronto’s Dishwashers
by FoodShare
24 October – 28 November 2019

Opening Reception 24 October, 6-9pm

FoodShare is proud to present The Untold Stories of Toronto’s Dishwashers, an extraordinary documentation of some of the lowest-wage workers in the restaurant industry. Photographer Sandro Pehar’s in-depth portraits expose the heart of the busy commercial kitchen where every facet of a restaurant comes together. In doing so, these thought-provoking images honour the unrecognized labour of low-wage employees in the food system.

Panel discussion begins at 6:15pm; seating is limited.

Panelists:

  • Sandro Pehar, photographer
  • Dishwashers featured in the photo exhibit
  • Gilleen Pearce, Better Way Alliance
  • Pam Frache, Fight for $15 and Fairness

The panel discussion will feature a facilitated conversation that shines a spotlight on the experiences and issues of low-wage restaurant workers, specifically dishwashers. The discussion will focus on building a broader understanding of how applying a food justice and equity lens to the restaurant industry can help draw attention to sites of exploitation within the food system, and discuss what steps need to be taken to build equity and food security for those who are involved in the process of putting food on our plates.

Please RSVP for the Opening Reception on Eventbrite.


Second Floor

(mus)interpreted
10 October – 16 November 2019

Opening Reception: 10 October, 6:30-8:30pm

This exhibition showcases the work of 8 GTA-based self-identifying Muslim women who work with varied visual arts mediums and approaches to their craft. The returning artists in this year’s show capture their here and now through visual explorations of current curiosities and musings. Their pieces are self-reflective and centre the fluidity and playfulness of discovery through creative experimentation. (mus)interpreted provides a platform for alternative insights into the diverse realities of Muslim women. It is a collective envisioning of an inclusive future where the stories of Muslim women are amplified and celebrated as deeply as they are lived.

Exhibiting Artists: Ifrah Akram, Leila Fatemi, Hanan Hazime, Hanin Ibrahim, Manaalistan, Mariam Magsi, Meral Pasha, Shazlin Rahman

(mus)interpreted is presented by The Truth & Dare Project, funded by the Toronto Arts Council, and supported by the Toronto Artscape Foundation. This exhibit was curated by Zahra Agjee. 

The Truth & Dare Project provides free photography-based workshops for young Muslim women in the GTA. We aim to create a safe space for young Muslim women to: collaborate with others who have faced similar adversities; learn individually and collectively; and use visual art as a creative outlet to share their stories, struggles, and triumphs.

The Truth & Dare Project acknowledges the ancestral and traditional territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Huron-Wendat, who are the original owners and custodians of the land on which we stand and create.
