FishNet is a two-part project comprised of a craft phase, where children from 25 Toronto based schools, learn and understand the habitat of local fish and make textile copies of indigenous species (like little stuffed pillows), and part two, a release phase “occurs when Harbourfront Centre, acting (metaphorically) as a fish hatchery, sponsors the ‘release’ of the crafted textile fish” and fills their main gallery with all the kids copies swimming around the space.

“When complete, the project will have combined the creative talents of approximately 2,000 students, educators, artists and designers for the purposes of exploring the multiple themes of sustainability, collaboration and activism”.
