September 23rd, acclaimed graphic novelist Seth Tobocman will present War in the Neighbourhood, a classic study of anti-gentrification activism in New York, recently re-issued by Ad Astra Comix. At a time when gentrification threatens to change the face of Kensington Market, and other areas of Toronto which have traditionally been home to those on the margins, this story is more important for us than ever. We’ll also hear from some local activists (details to be confirmed).
We’re very excited about this event, and we hope you can join us!
Part of the Faith, Art and Activism festival, an annual collaboration between St Stephen’s, the Trinity College Chaplaincy, and the Student Christian Movement.
We are co-sponsoring this event with St. Stephen-in-the-Fields!
