In 2013 The STEPS Initiative made news with the World’s Tallest Mural on 200 Wellesley. This year, through their PATCH (Public Art Through Construction Hoarding) Project they launched PATCH It Up, in Regent Park.

On June 7th, for the 100 Interventions in 1 Day Festival, The PATCH Project hosted a live painting event at Daniels Spectrum. This project showcased PATCH’s unique approach to engaging communities in making impactful public art on sites of transition, like construction sites or transitioning storefronts.

In partnership with the STEPS Initiative, the Centre for Social Innovation, Daniels Spectrum, and UforChange, the PATCH It Up! intervention engaged community members with the design and painting of two large-scale pieces of art, alongside artist, Troy Pynn. The artwork was installed outside of the Toronto Community Housing property on the east end of Daniels Spectrum, and have brought the vibrancy and energy to the streets of Regent Park.
