Greater Forest Lawn

YOUTH ARTS ACTION (South) and WHAT FEEDS US are our primary program in GFL. They are both comprised of youth aged 15-18 who act as creative leaders in their community.

Whispers in the Tall Grass

Whispers in the Tall Grass is a community-generated audio installation that will be featured in the Forest Lawn Natural Playground between the months of August and October 2017. The project is produced by Antyx Community Arts and local artist Caitlind R.C. Brown in partnership with Parks Foundation. The past two weeks, we've been chatting with the public at the Forest Lawn Natural Playground and the Forest Lawn Public Library. 

The youth from the Antyx Community Arts Youth Arts Action team have been working to finesse their interviewing and journalism skills over the past term. Using these skills they have ventured into the Forest Lawn neighbourhood to engage residents with their community, their connection to home and their relationship with other neighbours. The youth are audio recording these interviews. Snippets from different interviews will then be edited down into an audio montage featuring the collective and diverse voices of Greater Forest Lawn. This audio montage will be placed in the speakers installed in the berms that will be built up this summer in the construction of the Forest Lawn Natural Playground.

If you are interested in having one of the youth do a 10-15 minute interview with you please contact kevin@antyx.org. Or you can check out one of our upcoming pre-planned community events:
