The Queen Street Cartography - Year 1
Photography, Performance and Mixed Media Installation.

north of Queen Street West)

Queen Street is a great "leveler." And the Queen Streetcar carries its cargo of life-long city dwellers and new arrivals of (almost) every stripe and class along the entire length of T.O.'s vibrant east-west corridor. What the Queen Car is not, however, is accessible. Not yet, anyway.

A Queen Street Cartography is a heady mash-up of photography, performance, music and intimate "podplays" - an exploration and re-mapping of the city and its people through a disability lens.

Led by BC comedian, media artist and performer Jan Derbyshire, a wildly diverse and highly accomplished company of musicians, storytellers, and photographers present a rich new map of Toronto's iconic street.

Abilities Arts Festival (10th annual) is a multidisciplinary forum for the creation and presentation of work by artists with disabilities.
