Remembering Our Public Services: A Creative Workshop
Steelworkers Hall, 25 Cecil Street
Sunday, May 13, 2012
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Join the DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC MEMORY for a hands-on investigation of our research on Toronto’s public services. Learn about what the DEPARTMENT does during a short year-in-review presentation. Then role up your sleeves and dive into the fascinating material we’ve gathered in our conversations with Toronto service users. What information should the DEPARTMENT use in its commemorative signs? How do we keep the memory of lost public services alive? How can these memories foster future struggles for improved public service? We look forward to your input!
The DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC MEMORY’s mandate is to mark city services under threat. The DEPARTMENT learns from Torontonians about the rich histories of services that matter to them and makes memorials to those services.
