Step Into My Space is a testament to Spadina Museum, and visitors to any global space. It is a tribute to connections made to this place, its history, ancestors and to each other. Enter the magically lit 5 acres and access the on-line streaming connected to this event. View the film and its companion textile art near the main entrance. Follow the hooded sculpture along the south lawn leading to figures of past visitors and residents of this place. Turn the corner to enter the massive light maze constructed out of recycled water bottles. Participate with each other within, find your way to the centre and follow your instructions for this experience. Exit this maze and continue past the formal garden to enjoy multimedia sculpture. Walk over to the beautifully lit greenhouse featuring stunning paintings set amongst the museum's stunning floral selection. Interact with and manipulate the performance artist and see what happens inside the garage. Now sit down in the audience and enjoy the live action. All this while enjoying delightfully lit nature and surprises along the way. Welcome to our spaces.

One Path is the accumulation of the many choices one has in life but ultimately the one path we choose. We are a multi-media, multi-cultural and multi-generational group that joined paths in forming this collective. United, we share dedication to the creation of art embodying our diverse perspectives lending a voice to traditionally underrepresented populations. Our body of work demonstrates the power of art to foster reflection inspiring possible solutions to societal challenges in the 21st century. With Debi Brennen, Darkly Designed.
Special thanks to Spadina Museum allowing us the privilege of using their facility and beautiful grounds to display our art. We are very lucky to have all of you behind the scene helping us pull this event together. Much appreciation to those who scoured our neighbourhoods in search of plastic bottles, newspapers and various household items to save a bit of our earth's footprint and upcycle into art.
