Activities and Workshops

Upcoming activities and workshops at the AGM:

Tuesday, August 23rd, 1-3 pm
Workshop: Mixtape Mapping *
For youth ages 12 – 19

Many works in Meet us at the commons use music to describe a meaningful connection to places and as a tool to transform our surroundings. Participants will collaborate on making a map of Mississauga by locating places of personal significance and mapping them out on a giant piece of paper to illustrate the city’s geography based on memories and experiences of it. Participants will also produce a playlist of songs that correspond to these places, creating mixtape maps to engage with and explore the world around us. The map will be displayed in the AGM and the playlist will be shared on the AGM’s blog.
