A collaboration between Monica Wickeler – artist/facilitator Nyle Miigizi Johnston -collaborating lead artist and youth mentor (Contemporary/Traditional storyteller/visual artist, Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation).
The Laneway Project not-for-profit, community-centered urban planning, and design Finding Our Power Together supported the Indigenous Youth Jam
The Storytelling Mural and Healing Corridor have been innovative in its use of arts and culture to foster the transformation of Central Hospital Lane in these ways
-Toronto’s first Healing Corridor theme connects the surrounding Healthcare Centers and the values in the Indigenous Cultural story of the ‘Gift of the Jewelweed’ mural with the medicinal plants in the healing gardens. This combination of ideas all centered around the idea of Healing comes at a time when these communities need it the most.
