LIFE ON THE LINE
Life on the Line is a public art project and mental health awareness campaign on the Toronto TTC Subway. Ten artworks relating to mental health by ten different artists were exhibited across 200 20" x 27" posters on the Line 1 Subway from November 16th, 2020 - January 16th, 2021 to raise awareness for mental health and funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association Toronto's Family Outreach and Response Program.
50 limited edition (signed & numbered) prints of each of the ten selected works are still available for sale in our e-commerce store, where 75% of all sales will be donated to the CMHA Toronto's Family Outreach and Response Program (the other 25% will be paid to artists).
We partnered with Unsinkable, a mental health storytelling platform founded by Olympian Silken Laumann, who published the artist's mental health stories throughout the campaign.
