The City of Oshawa began collaborating with Durham College’s Community Collaborations Course in 2015. Over the past four years, student's work has been showcased in three murals located at Civic Square (located on Centre Street at City Hall), vinyl images affixed to the windows of the Arts Resource Centre, and in Alexandra Park adjacent to Lakeridge Health Oshawa as well as inside the hospital. For the 2019/2020 project, we will be choosing locations in our Community Centres and Oshawa Seniors Community Centres.

"Fictionary aligns with non-ordinary forms of consciousness such as trance, humour, meditation and dreams. Few straight lines appear in this free-handed and open-ended show. Here’s a site where exuberance reigns supreme!"
- Olexander Wlasenko, Curator
From Me To You
For the group of pieces titled "From Me To You" I collaborated with writer Chris Jackson, who drew his written work from 2 images I created and presented to him. A sample of the writing that was inspired by each piece can be viewed next to each image.

For the group of pieces titled "From You To Me" I collaborated with writer Chris Jackson, drawing my images from his narrative. The writing that inspired each piece can be viewed next to each image.
All Together Now
For the group of work titled "All Together Now" (below) I presented gallery visitors with a grid of named characters and a blank booklet. Pariticpants were invited into a red curtained booth to begin a story involving 1-3 of the characters from the grid. Each concecutive participant had to continue the story from the point it left off, each time involving 1-3 new characters.
