Dear Love...

We want to know what comes to mind when you hear the word “love.” Share your thoughts by filling out the form below and attaching a brief voice note, video or written response – no more than 30 seconds or a sentence or two! 

Your words may be incorporated into an artistic design that will surround Love Park, reclaimed as public space from its former use as the Gardiner’s York-Bay-Yonge eastbound off-ramp, will be a new 2-acre park being brought to life at the foot of York Street and Queens Quay West by Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto. Make sure to submit your love letter by July 2, 2021.

About The Project

Love Letters is an artistic piece that prods the viewer to consider vivid and rich textures of love and how it is understood as a symbol, a thought, a language, and a feeling. Whether for your partner, your grandmother, a tree in a park, or a food stand, we want to know what makes your heart expand! The resulting design is a visual record of experiences that speaks through pattern, text and audio that will detail how we come to know and understand love in all of its layers of complexity. 

Love Letters is looking to collect brief audio and written responses from you! Nothing more than a 30 second sound bite or a few sentences. 

BSAM Canada, in collaboration with STEPS Public Art, Waterfront BIA and Waterfront Toronto invites you to reminisce on your relationship with love. What was it about love that caught your eye, that caused you to wonder, and left an imprint on you?  Below you’ll find the questions we would like to hear you respond to:

  1. What’s the first thing you would teach your younger self about love
  2. What is an expression of love that has stayed with you for a long time?
  3. Do you think the way your family loves has affected the way you love

The most exciting part of it all, your words may be incorporated into an artistic design that will surround the Love Park construction. Love Park, reclaimed as public space from its former use as the Gardiner’s York-Bay-Yonge eastbound off-ramp, will be a new 2-acre park at the foot of York Street and Queens Quay West on Toronto’s waterfront, being brought to life by Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto.

The deadline to submit your feelings, thoughts, and expressions of love is July 2, 2021. If you have any questions about this project, please reach out to our team at admin@bsamcanada.ca

Love Letters is designed by BSAM Canada in collaboration with Waterfront Toronto, Waterfront BIA and STEPS Public Art. It will be displayed on the construction hoarding surrounding Love Park.
