Event Image for Phullo, phallo, phirse

phullo, phallo, phirse is a storytelling project featuring four diasporic women sharing the ways in which they tend to their beloved rose bushes, and how roses tint their way of seeing the world. The project is presented with the South Asian Visual Arts Centre and engages with Waard Ward’s rose garden at East York Town Centre, to explore embodied and collective knowledge as well as the symbiotic relationships we have built with plants. 

Until the end of August, follow them on Instagram (@savac_) to experience these stories, and use the hashtag #phullophallo to share your own encounter with a special rose or rose garden. This program complements Ward Waard Collective’s community rose garden that features in the I am land that speaks exhibition at ArtWorxTO Hub South: Union Station, curated by Maya Wilson-Sanchez as part of Toronto’s Year of Public Art.
