A Love Letter to the Great Lakes

  • Artscape Gibraltor Point 443 Lakeshore Avenue Toronto, ON, M5J 2W2 Canada (map)

A Love Letter to the Great Lakes is a grassroots, artist-led mural project in Toronto, that will be creating murals of appreciation and awareness to threats currently facing our Great Lakes. 

Join us in celebrating the majesty of the Great Lakes through this dynamic festival of art, designed to beautify Toronto's neighbourhoods, galvanize community, and most importantly, stimulate a broader public awareness of the critical issues facing this breath-taking and unique natural resource, containing a staggering 95% of North America’s surface freshwater.

This amazing event kicks off on Sunday, June 19 at 1:30pm at Toronto Island's Artscape Gibraltor Point. Waterkeeper's Vice President, Krystyn Tully will speak on why community-led projects like the Love Letters Project, play a big part in the protection of the Great Lakes. There will be a Q&A that follows with Krystyn and a number of participating artists – so stick around!

Together, we can give voice to this awe-inspiring resource and these critical issues to explore creative solutions in the minds and streets of Toronto.
