Dream Street by The Street Society

June 19 - September 26

Location: 125-133 Niagara St

Opens June 19 (approx.)

Use the different backdrops in the mural to create and record your own stories using #playinginpublic. From the urban forest to the local store, there are many places to explore.

Dream Street is a vertical playground open to all, inviting visitors to experience the city from a child’s perspective. This utopian cityscape mural is co-created with youth from Paris and Toronto. Like an outdoor film set, the different backdrops are perfect to play, to imagine, and to record stories. Mixing scales and perspective effects, the mural offers a fully immersive experience.

Dream Street was produced as part of The Bentway’s Playing in Public exhibition. Created and designed by The Street Society (creative urban agency based in Paris), with Bérénice Milon, Margaux Grappe, Eloïse Gillard, Edoardo Cecchin, Justine Lipski, Clémence Chapus and Alice Cabaret.

Commissioned by:  Co-presented by: 

 

Dream Street is a part of The Bentway’s Playing in Public season, a collection of outdoor and online projects that invite you to rediscover “play” in the city.
