“Awakening”, a poetry film inspired by public art in Mississauga now has been released. The short film was produced and directed by Anna Yin with her film crew members Sarah Hei and Roy Marques. The film covers more than 10 pieces of public art in Mississauga and reveals the city’s unique history and culture with beautiful natural scenes. This project won a 2023 Micro Matchmaker grant from Mississauga Arts Council and was supported by local art groups and businesses. Here is the film link for you to enjoy:
Special thanks to the Mississauga Arts Council, the Mississauga Nation, Triple J Canada, and Kaideed Education. Congratulations on this exciting release! Check more about this project.
Mississauga is home to Indigenous peoples and diverse ethnic groups. Public art is vital to connect communities and showcase cultural identities. When I was Mississauga’s inaugural poet laureate, I envisioned a project that would link poetry and public art in a collaborative film. In March 2023, I wrote a poem “Reflecting on Public Art in Mississauga” inspired by this idea and submitted it with my film project, together these won MAC’s 2023 spring Matchmaker MicroGrant.
Now we are ready to begin our project and plan to finish a film based on it in Oct, 2023. We would like to invite you to participate in our upcoming film-making activities. Click the link to read the poem!
