Weathered was a digital photography exhibition at Yonge & Dundas Square and a fundraising campaign for Street Health's Overdose Prevention Site.
Exhibited from August 23rd - September 6th (coinciding with Overdose Awareness Day, Aug 31st), Weathered shared the stories behind the statistics of the overdose crisis. Due to the restrictions surrounding COVID-10, families submitted photographs of shoes belonging to loved ones who have died from an overdose. These images and stories were used through the campaign. Weathered raised over $10,000 for Street Health's lifesaving program.
Life on the Line is a public art project and mental health awareness campaign on the Toronto TTC Subway.
First launching in November 2018, Life on the Line is now an annual event that reaches millions of people both online and in-person. Every year we ask artists to submit artwork related to personal experiences with mental health for: exhibition on the Toronto Subway, sale in our e-commerce store (where 75% of all sales are donated to the CMHA Toronto), and in a digital campaign (including videos, stories, and more).
