Congratulations to 19 Mississauga Artists who won MicroGrant for Spring 2023 projects (MAC)

Anna Yin will start her project in June 2023: Creating a reflective film to foster cultural values
Project that fuses poetry and public art in a collaborative film. She will team with Roy Marques, Sarah Hei and other artists/participants for this short film project. She thanks MAC, AGM, Triple J Canada, Kaideed Education and other sponsors!

This project will start in June teamed up with a core film team and plan to finish in Oct, 2023. During the filming process, Anna will invite the public to join us with activities (more will be released) to enrich connections with our city and our communities to further understand the role of public art in the history and cultural development of Mississauga. Currently we have received wonderful supports from local artists and sponsors (Anna’s sponsors from last year will continue their sponsorship).
It is a small low budge project. If any of you or your company would like to be involved with this project or sponsor it, please feel free to contact [email protected] Cheers. #project #film #publicart #sponsor
