emPATH: An Art Exploration with PARC, Celebrating Parkdale.

Parkdale is changing a lot. And quickly.
For those of us who call Parkdale home, it’s hard not to notice these changes.
The places where we live are becoming expensive homes, apartments, and condos.
The places where we go are becoming designer boutiques and fine dining restaurants.
Many of our friends are being forced to leave. Maybe we are being forced to leave too.
What do these changes in the neighbourhood mean to you?
How do they make you feel?
On March 18th and 19th, PARC is celebrating its 36th anniversary, and we invite you to
experience em|PATH: a creative exploration of how neighbourhood changes are being felt by community members. Join us for an exhibition, art sale, community meal, live performances, and walking tours of neighbourhood locations that are important to the PARC community – and maybe to you.
Experience the stories, creativity, and resilience of Parkdale!

Starting at 5 a.m. on March 21, 505 Dundas streetcars will not enter Dundas West Station.
• 505 Dundas streetcars will operate both ways between High Park Loop (on Parkside Drive) to regular routing on Dundas Street (see map).
