The Toronto Homeless Memorial remembers those who have died as a result of homelessness in Toronto. This project is maintained by Holy Trinity and other concerned citizens.
There is a memorial service held on the second Tuesday of each month at 12:00 PM outside the south door of Holy Trinity. 2016 dates are June 14, July 12, August 9, September 13, October 11, November 8, and December 13.
Wednesday, March 9 6:30 – 9:30 PM Stone and Glass – we are all Transient
We all pass briefly through the world, but we are not all treated the same. In Toronto alone nearly 800 people have died on the streets and in temporary shelters since 1985. Many die without a name, listed only as Jan or John Doe. Come for an evening light and sound installation honouring them and calling for change in their memory.
This event is part of the Myseum Intersections Festival exploring intersecting perspectives on the city’s diversity. It is good to be highlighting the Homeless Memorial as part of the City of Toronto’s 150th birthday with Myseum of Toronto.
