Pan Am Path: 2015
From May 16th - August 15th 2015, the Pan Am Path will feature art and events in different locations around Toronto.
On Saturday, July 4th, the Diva Girls took Pan Amazing TV to the Pan Am Path to check out the art installations and talk with the many Toronto residents and visitors who were out on the trail.
The first stop was the undercurrent audio installation that sang the river’s Anishinaabemowin name to people passing by on the bridge. On their way to the next feature, the girls ran into Lois Lindsay from Evergreen who gave them an update on the path and all of the great events scheduled throughout the summer. The Divas also got to chat with some passersby who gave their thoughts on what they had seen for the day.
Next, the Diva girls took in a live public poetry performance by over 25 participants. Afterwards, the Divas were lucky enough to bump into some Aboriginal performers who took the time to talk with the girls about the river and their role on the path. A little further down the trail, the divas found a great spot on the river to take a break. The rocks that line the sides of the river are perfect place to cool off and take some pictures. The last installation the divas visited was the N0. 9 Eco Art Fest at Todmorden Mills. The Divas interviewed Andrew from Evergreen who talked about the Art Fest and the vision for the Pan Am path.
Finally, check out the Divas giving their own thoughts about the day and their experience on the path!
