The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea All Day

Over the course of ten days, the Southdown Industrial Area in Mississauga will be transformed into a site-specific contemporary art exhibition. With commissioned works by Canadian and international artists, THE WORK OF WIND: AIR, LAND, SEA will create an operatic experience of elemental forces, geopolitical processes, and environmental violence impacting the Earth.

A contemporary art project of this scale is the first of its kind in Mississauga. The festival aims to provoke, surprise, and delight viewers by demonstrating that art can be experienced anywhere and everywhere. The two-week festival will also feature a series of live events, including performances, film screenings, talks, workshops, and other on-site events, to further animate the thirteen exhibition sites and commissioned projects, reaching diverse communities across the city. The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea is an invitation to the city’s publics to create memorable encounters with art, in the common struggle for a healthy, vibrant future. This transformational project presents an opportunity for artists, thinkers, industry, and everyday citizens to engage with each other in meaningful discussion about climate change and environmental responsibility.

The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge Hub on September 15 & 22 from 11:00am - 5:00pm at Lakeside Park, 2268 Lakeshore Road West. The Hub brings together booths from municipal and regional environmental divisions, local environmental organizations, and University of Toronto research to showcase approaches to climate change research and action taking place in the area.
