Resonance Building: Collective Healing + Arts
(840 Lawrence St) 

Friday, July 2, 7-9pm

Participate in a social art experiment during these First Friday garden parties as we mark the transition from isolation back to social integration. At this informal public gathering, guests can engage in a postcard art project by writing and sending a complementary Golden Message Postcard. The postcards contain an embedded video meditation and message of loving kindness intended to amplify whatever hand-written note garden party participants choose to write to their chosen friend or loved one. Read more

Hours: 2pm-midnight daily

This show features a variety of some new, some old, and some never before seen works. Read more
