toronto shirts

Someone remade the Toronto vs Everybody tee

Peace Collective's Toronto vs Everybody tees are everywhere. But students at OCAD University's Indigenous Visual Cultures Department have given them a much-needed revamp.

Artist and illustrator Kaia'tanoron Dumoulin Bush designed the shirts. "The work is about land acknowledgement and remembering the lost place names that have kind of disappeared in Toronto's colonial history," she tells me.

The name on the shirt references the etymology of Toronto, which can be traced back to an Anglicized Mohawk word meaning an area where trees grow in shallow water.

So far, the shirts are generating a lot of interest, both on and off the OCAD campus. "I'm hoping that people who are wearing the shirts are bringing awareness to people who are not wearing them," she continues.

The project's a fundraiser for the Indigenous Visual Cultures Department at OCAD University. The $20 shirts are currently on sale at the Indigenous Visual Cultures Office and they'll also be available in Butterfield Park from noon to 3 p.m. during the school's Indigenous Visual Culture Days 2016 on Sept. 20.
