A Love Letter to the Great Lakes mural festival in Toronto was the first fresh water edition of PangeaSeed Foundation's Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans project, which aims to bring awareness to issues surrounding our water resources, their inhabitants and those who depend on them. This week of art and activism was a collaboration with Hermann & Audrey, Montreal artist Jason Botkin and an amazing group of organizers and change makers to create large scale public art in the form of murals in the theme of fresh water protection, centred around the neighbourhoods of Queen West and Ossington Ave, Queen West and Spadina Ave, and the lower Don River.As part of our contribution to Toronto's first ever large scale mural festival, we present our own love letter to the lakes, the artists, and all involved in making this project a reality. Please enjoy.Special thanks to our community partners Lululemon, Lush Natural Cosmetics, Art Relay, Friends of Pan Am Path, Montana Cans, Pinturas Osel, Matte PR, Hullmark, StART, Toronto Waterkeeper, Watermark Project and Waterfront Toronto.Directed and Edited by Yoshi YanagitaProduced by Tre' Packard and Yoshi Yanagita Cinematography by Yoshitaro YanagitaOrganizers:Amy Peebles — Project ManagerJason Botkin — Artistic DirectorTre Packard — Founder, PangeaSeed Foundation/Sea Walls ProjectJacquelyn West — Strategic Partnerships & HQ Programming, Hermann & AudreyEnriqueta Arias — Communications & International Media CoordinatorStuart Pearce — Festival OperationsMolly Leathem — Volounteer & Community CoordinatorGabriella Penev — Communications CoordinatorDevon Ostrom — Organizing Partner, Don River SiteAnn-Marie Power — Festival Operations, Don River SiteJean DeMers — Volounteer CoordinatorArtists:Sermob (Mexico City, Mexico)Miguel Valiñas (Mexico City, Mexico)Sens (Mexico City, Mexico)Birdo (Toronto, Canada)Caratoes (Hong Kong)Chris Konecki (San Diego, USA)Peru Dyer (Toronto, Canada)Jaz (Argentina)PA System (Toronto, Canada)Cinzah Merkens (Aukland, New Zealand)Kwest (Toronto, Canada)Young Jarus (Toronto, Canada)Elicser Elliot (Toronto, Canada)Bruno Smoky (Toronto, Canada)Kevin Ledo (Montreal, Canada)Olivier Bonnard (Montreal, Canada)Rajni Perera (Toronto, Canada)Kristen McCrea (Toronto, Canada)MC Baldassari (Montreal, Canada)EGR (Toronto, Canada)John Todd (Toronto, Canada)Jason Botkin (Montreal, Canada)Learn more at PangeaSeed.org and loveletterprojects.com and write your own love letter today.
