Street Art and Community Engagement: Dan Bergeron in Conversation with David Liss


bergeronsukkahIn conjunction with Sukkahville 2015, the Koffler Centre of the Arts has commissioned Toronto-based visual artist Dan Bergeron to create a re-imagined, contemporary ‘Sukkah’: a temporary outdoor hut built for one week, in which it is customary for families to share meals, during the annual Jewish holiday of Sukkot.

Please join Koffler Centre for the Arts for an informal conversation with Bergeron and David Liss, MOCCA’s Artistic Director and Curator. They will discuss how Dan’s work blends Street Art aesthetics and a deep engagement with communities, to foster reflection upon issues of personal identity, social relationships and the spaces we collectively inhabit.

Dan Bergeron’s Sukkah will be on display during Sukkahville 2015 (September 25 – 27, 2015 in Nathan Phillips Square) in support of the Kehilla Residential Programme’s affordable housing initiatives.
