#OneBraveNight 1 Week in

cityspace

I am creating art every day until April 6th. In hopes to bring awareness to Mental Illness.

1 in 5 Canadians will suffer from one form of Mental Illness in their lifetime. That’s 4 children in a class room of 20! That’s a lot of suffering.

If not handled correctly, Mental Illness can be deadly, it can consume your life, your everyday move, your thoughts and your feelings. I have been there. I suffer from Manic Depression and I am taking a stand against it and taking control of my life.

I took the #OneBraveNight challenge because I want to inspire hope for people living with mental illness now – and to defeat mental illness. By making a donation to my One Brave Night, you are helping CAMH improve access to care, conduct research to find better treatments, and build more spaces for healing.

This is our chance to step up! Please donate generously and help me reach my fundraising goal.lennon

Come to my Art Show on April 6th 6pm-10pm Toronto-exact location TBA *all art will be available for donation*

Please follow me on my social media platforms to behind the scenes of my art progress and final pieces available for donation

|FAT| Arts & Fashion Week 2014

Welcome friends and family to FAT- Arts & Fashion Week 2014! #fashion #art #taraartist #toronto #shoetree

I am pleased and honoured to announce I will be displaying an Interactive Art Installation at the week long event!

BACKSTORY—>I come from the country side, Durham Region, and on my way to my cottage I have always seen trees covered in cottagers old summer shoes. I have always been drawn to the mystery of the shoe, who worn them, who started them, how did they get there? Well know its my turn to create one in Toronto! Help me by bringing your old unwanted shoes!

HOW?—>I am asking all designers, fashionistas, photographers, friends, and family to bring your old, worn, unwanted shoes to hammer into my week long installation. We will be creating a Fashion Shoe Tree onsite by incorporating used shoes onto a tree near the venue! (SHHHHH!! Its a secret!)

MY GOAL—> To create Toronto’s First FASHION SHOE TREE!

“The tree at the end of the road, the model at the end of the runway
The tree that grows while the trends fade away
No one ever knew that this would be the day
The models’ shoes become the tree
While the tree becomes the runway”- Tara

TICKETS—> $35 per day or $100 for the whole week, visit http://fashionarttoronto.ca/buy-tickets/ for ordering online. Tickets will be available at the door
