Taking place through the winter season, November 14, 2020 –January 31, 2021, The Junction 1st Annual Window Wonderland, presented by MEDS Junction Pharmacy, will transform our neighbourhood into an outdoor gallery that is interactive, engaging, and magical. The exhibition will use local artists and Augmented Reality (AR) to create an impressive display of public art.
In partnership with Calgary-based non-profit organization, Buds Collective, The Junction BIA will be showcasing our local businesses and artists featuring ten interactive painted windows accessed through the AR app, Augle. Window Wonderland will be Toronto’s first large-scale display of AR and will provide an accessible, expressive and immersive artistic experience for locals and visitors. Join us in this unique creative experience to show Toronto how amazing our local artists and businesses are!
We are delighted to share that The Junction BIA was selected to receive the City of Toronto’s Innovation Fund, which provides us with $25,000 to go towards this project. The Innovation Fund is a grant that provides funding to BIAs to test innovative and creative solutions to BIA issues and share their findings and results with other BIAs. The program exists to encourage innovation within the BIA model and to allow for unique projects to be piloted throughout the city.
This exhibition will be the first of its kind in Toronto and is a unique and memorable experience for the whole family!
