Meet Me in the Yard
June 03 at 1pm
Meet Me in the Yard (MMITY) is an audio installation created in collaboration with five community contributors, each sharing true stories of the personal impacts of incarceration. The story contributors ask powerful questions about justice and restitution on both national institutional and interpersonal levels, and offer visions of a transformed criminal justice system.
MMITY was originally commissioned by the Provocation Ideas Festival, and presented in partnership with the Toronto International Festival of Author’s MOTIVE Festival. Story contributors were located in collaboration with artists and activists working within the Canadian and American criminal justice systems.
This project is the latest manifestation of Trophy, an evolving and award-winning creative investigation into individual and collective change rooted in the personal lived experiences of communities across the globe.
Date & Time: June 3 at 1–6pm ET
Where: Outdoor Tent at Harbourfront Centre
This audio installation is presented as part of the free events at #MotiveTO, taking place outside and open to the general public. No tickets or passes are needed to attend.
