This Saturday May 31st from 1:00-4:00, St James Town Arts will be holding an event to celebrate its launch, in the green area near 260 Wellesley. SJTA has been under development over the past year, offering programs in the creative arts for area residents since September unofficially. In addition, it has organized two key art works which will feature in the event: the Button Mural, designed by Gillian Foster of Art City and contributed to by countless tenants; and The St James Town Banner Project – my pet project since its first engagement with the community back in February.
There will be a wide range of activities on offer, including henna, dance demonstrations, cultural displays, a colouring table, face painting, and an exhibition of work by local artists (including myself!). We would love to see as many of you there as can come! If festivities aren’t enough of a lure, then come for the awesome food from around the globe you can expect!
