To Regent Park, With Love
August 2, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join Syrus Marcus Ware, the inaugural Artist In Residence for Daniels Spectrum as he toasts a year of art making and community collaboration through a celebration and community love fest with residents of Regent.
Join us for a communal meal, take in the pop up performances by local residents, and experience the drawings and banners made during Syrus’s residency at Daniels Spectrum. Part performative Activist Love Letter , part formal sit down dinner- this gathering will feature performances by local artists and activists and food by the Regent Park Catering Collective, and Nish Dish.
“I used to live in Regent in the late 90s, and have fallen back into this landscape in such a deep and familiar way. Buy far, what stands out for me about Regent Park is the people. I have spent the past year taking portraits of residents and activists here, translating them into giant drawn portrait celebrating their lives and their organizing. Over the past year, I have found a new home in Daniels Spectrum: a space of healing, power, support, creativity and magical transformation.
When trying to imagine a closing summary that could showcase this amazing year, this amazing place, I instinctively felt that the most important thing that I could do was to share my love back to this powerful community. These people , who are gathered around this place, have made me feel whole, and I have witnessed first hand how they have shared and been with each other to ensure that everyone here makes it/survives and thrives.” – Syrus Marcus Ware
