City Doctors (not actual doctors) is a participatory public art intervention that invites local residents to consult with an expert urban advisor on their experience living in the neighbourhood and add their voice to a growing community analysis. Following a one-on-one appointment with a city doctor at one of their signature outdoor walk-in clinics, participants will walk away with a personalized prescription for how to troubleshoot their urban quandaries and maximize city living.
*EQUΔLΔTERΔL was a Toronto-based artist collective, comprised of Emily DiCarlo, Jacqui Arntfield and W.J. Wilson, who created interdisciplinary projects with a relational, interactive focus between 2011-2017. Their projects required participation from the viewer, moving them from a passive role to one that is an integral part of the final work. With a preference for exhibiting in non-traditional spaces and making site-responsive works, EQUΔLΔTERΔL’s projects made appearances in streetcars, laneways, vacant storefronts, bars, parks, music venues and private homes.
