These pics are from the Sheroes Music Festival, which took place during a Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington market in July. The festival was another fabulous afternoon of art and music making put on by the Whippersnapper team. The parking lot behind El Gordo Fine Foods was an explosion of creativity. A team of some of my favourite local artists (Nicholas Robbins, Alexandra Mackenzie, Ginette Lapalme and Fiona Smyth to name a few) painted an En Masse mural together as local musicians and bands played on stage. It was a thrill to watch the mural progress and transform as the artists improvised and collaborated on the wall together. I danced to the enchanting music of Lido Pimienta as the sun set behind the painted masks of Erykah Badu, Dolly Parton and Debbie Harry. As we approach the last weekend of August, I’m already feeling nostalgic for sweet summer afternoons like this one.
