the place we left:
The Place We Left is an ongoing interactive community art project, creating illustrations for participants representing places they have left or lost. It could be either in the context of the current moment (for example, a place currently inaccessible due to pandemic safety measures) or in the broader context of each participant's life (for example, a childhood home). One copy of the drawing is mailed to each participant as a keepsake and connection to the place they left, and another copy is collected and exhibited as an archive of left-behind but cherished places and the diverse experiences of the people leaving.

The Place We Left is created with the support of the BC Arts Council Early Career Development Mentorship Grant with mentor Marina Szijarto
