DANIELS’ LOCAL ART PROGRAM
We design buildings that reflect the aesthetics of their neighbourhoods, commission locally sourced art from emerging and mid-career artists and invite creatives to join in city-building.
At Daniels on Parliament, Daniels collaborated with Shoot For Peace, a youth-led non-profit organization founded by Yasin Osman, to create the construction hoarding art exhibition. Shoot For Peace aims to empower at-risk youth to become leaders in their communities and pursue creative endeavors.
Art created by Shoot For Peace in Regent Park. Launched in 2015, Shoot For Peace began as a youth-led grassroots organization in Regent Park with the belief that art can change perspectives and build community. The program was initially created to combat the increasing violence in Toronto. Shoot For Peace’s mission is “community healing through art” and aims to empower at-risk youth to become leaders in their communities and pursue creative endeavours. Since its inception, the program has provided hundreds of youth with jobs, cameras and practical skills.
