May I Take Your Arm?

An image of 2 people walking together. The figure on the left has short hair, white skin, and is wearing a hoodie, jeans, and sunglasses; she holds a white cane in front of her, and she clasps the elbow of her walking companion. The figure on the right, providing sighted guide, has curly hair, brown skin, and is also wearing jeans and a hoodie. A cityscape stencil arches around them in bright yellow. In the navy blue background, there is a faint indigo outline of a map of a Toronto neighbourhood. Behind the figures, there is a sky blue stencil collage of people and objects found in the neighbourhood including Victorian houses, a basketball hoop, intersection lights, a hawk flying, a person sitting on a bench, lilies, clouds, a person travelling in a power chair, dogs, and mailboxes.

Opening tonight! May I Take Your Arm?

If we walk together, does the way we ‘see’ our neighbourhood change?

In a downtown Toronto neighbourhood, blind artist Alex Bulmer takes the arm of community members. Together, they walk, listen, and share stories of place. Experience their journeys through this multidimensional portrait that considers the past, illuminates the present, and evokes possible futures.
