April 30 – June 1, 2015 | series of in-classroom workshops

Inspired by the Koffler Gallery’s Spring 2015 exhibition, Erratics – an art installation by Martha Baillie and Malka Greene with Alan Resnick which brought together two distinct archives and explored the tensions between memory and fiction – Grade 5/6 students from Rose Avenue Public School and Paul Penna Downtown Jewish Day School explored the connections between place, memory and fiction.

During this 6-week project, students worked with urban geographer/artist Daniel Rotsztain to build collaborative neighbourhood archives through line drawing, mapping, personal narrative, postcard-writing and exchange.

This booklet serves as a collective archive of the two school communities, through the eyes and imagination of these creative students.
