Focus on Gerrard Gallery Show

focus on gerrard show 6ix clicks collective toronto

(sorry for the low res phone photos, I didn’t bring my proper camera to the opening)

Recently I was photographed for a gallery project about my neighborhood by 6ix Clicks Collective! The show was called “Focus on Gerrard” and features photos and interviews with people local to the Gerrard St. in Toronto. Gerrard has been home to the Indian Bazaar/Little India for over 50 years and some members of the community have been living and working in this area during that entire time. This part of the city is changing so quickly, in the 6 or so years I’ve lived in this neighborhood I’ve seen the area transform almost overnight.

New art galleries have popped up and shops, cafes, and creative spaces, it’s amazing to see a community blossom and change. Though I know gentrification does have it’s negative effects, small businesses and local communities feel the pressure of increased rent and changes to what they have known for so long. Some of the businesses photographed in the project had even closed before it’s launch, for example.

This week I went to the opening of the show and it was amazing to see my neighbors and all the familiar faces displayed there! The stories vary so widely and it’s really incredible to read them, if you’re in that area please go see the show at the Riverdale Hub’s gorgeous new gallery space.

This project provides a fascinating glimpse into a community changing rapidly, capturing the moment before gentrification either transforms us into another intersection of ugly condo buildings and boring Starbucks- or hopefully before Gerrard become a secure artistic and multicultural hub, buoyed by it’s amazing people and community.

Thank you to 6ix Clicks for including me in this show!

International Womens’ Day Thoughts

gloomth and alchemy of england rooftop

I’m wary to attach the label to days or specific protests, it often seems disingenuous to me when companies do that. Like Dove and their bullshit “real” beauty campaigns while still selling skin whiteners and while their parent company owns the “Axe” brand which has such charming (read- barf barf barf) ads. Don’t lie to my face that you’re a part of the struggle when you just want to sell me something. However I personally think these days and the marches and taking action within our communities is vital.

So here’s a few IWD thoughts. While we are fighting every day to claw back the rights governments in North America (and beyond) are pulling from us it’s important to honor those that have come before us in this fight. Who haven’t burnt out in their pursuit of equality in their years of work. Those that have died fighting this. Those that are often silenced by mainstream/commercial feminism or hardly heard from- lift their voices too because we are *all* in this together. Take care of those at risk in your community, participate when you can, and listen to the experiences of women who’s lives are different from your own. They matter. You matter. Keep safe, keep strong, keep fighting this fucking thing.

To the dudes: she shouldn’t have to be your friend, mother, daughter to expect rights and equality- she is a person. Full stop. If she has to matter to you personally to be awarded human rights you need to reconsider your position. Listen to women. Stop silencing us and derailing causes with crap posts on the internet about “womens’ day off”, try to learn why this should be crucial to all humans. If you’re finding all the talk about women exhausting- bummer. Privilege is often something you can’t see from within it, read read read, learn learn learn. We still like you, it’s not about one gender over another- it’s about human rights.
