Ghost Landscape in Novæ Res Urbis

“Woodlands Park: Ghost Landscape” is featured in this week’s Novae Res Urbis, Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area edition.

Marc Mitanis interviewed me about the project for his piece on Hamilton’s ongoing Placemaking Grant Pilot Program. Also featured are Esther Bryce’s “Portraits in Hamilton Amateur Athletic Association Park” (Kirkendall / Ward 1) and Hazel Cho and Juby Lee’s “The Children’s Garden” at Gage Park (Delta / Ward 3).

“Woodlands Park: Ghost Landscape” is a temporary project made possible by the City of Hamilton’s Placemaking Grant Pilot Program with support from the Patrick J. McNally Charitable Foundation. Additional support is generously provided by the Ward 3 Office of Councillor Nrinder Nann and USW Local 1005.

With thanks to Marc Mitanis, Samantha Lum, and Sarah Ehmke.
