The Neighbours Project

The Robert McLaughlin Gallery (RMG) is located in downtown Oshawa, a city like many that experienced an increase in homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. We began to explore how we could extend care to some of our closest neighbours who have experience with housing precarity or homelessness, including those working to reduce barriers to services and offer direct support. In this session, you’ll hear about how we had tough conversations internally, built connections with new organizations, formed friendships, and together developed a project that supported creative community development through art-making experiences that fostered connection and personal well-being.
