EVERYTHING I WANTED TO TELL YOU
What are the untold stories, secrets and conversations about the places you think you know? EVERYTHING I WANTED TO TELL YOU captures narratives of Scarborough’s diversity, nuance and resilience through a 4-channel text installation directly on the Scarborough Civic Centre during the first ever Nuit Blanche Scarborough in 2018.
The collection of messages were gathered through workshops with an intergenerational group of 11 Scarborough residents. The group visited lesser-known historical sites in Scarborough and several organizations that are part of the backbone of the community’s cultural scene.
This project was made in collaboration with Sofia Habib, Timothy Hunter, Noor Khan, Pamila Matharu, Joy Smith, Etta Snipe, Helen Su, Zahra Tootonsa, Trevor Twells, Islin Waite and Deshaun Whyte.
