You’re Invited to the Cosmopolis Toronto Photography Exhibit!
Have you ever stopped to consider the personal and family stories of Toronto’s nearly 3 million inhabitants? Or the diverse paths that brought us all together? At Bellissimo Law Group we experience the richness of Canada’s diverse immigration stories every day. We have a personal and professional interest in Canadian immigration, family reunification, and community diversity. We treat every case as if it was our own family.
It is because of these values that Bellissimo Law Group is very proud to help sponsor a community based project like Cosmopolis Toronto!
“Cosmopolis” by definition is a city inhabited by people from many different countries. Toronto is exactly that. More than half of Torontonians are born outside of Canada, making it arguably one of the most cosmopolitan cities on Earth.
Cosmopolis Toronto is a portrait photography exhibit featuring works by Colin Boyd Shafer and curated by Vanessa Tamburro. The project is on-going and aims to capture the faces and personal stories of people from every country in the world who now make the City of Toronto their home. It is both a celebration of multiculturalism and a way to remember the important historical relationship Canada has with immigration. Cosmopolis Toronto tells the personal stories of transnational migration: why people left and why they came. It uses the visual impact of photography to show that Toronto, and the people who make up this city have roots that span the globe.
Bellissimo Law Group would like to extend an invitation to view the Cosmopolis Toronto exhibit in person at the Toronto Centre for the Arts! The exhibition runs from January 15 – February 22, 2014. Admission is free, or by donation. For exhibition hours please see the daily schedule.
