Toronto Catholic District School Board

TCDSB’s Project Reach Featured At the 2014 Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Event

Celebrating TCDSB’s Year of Charity

Project Reach, an installation of artistic representations of the Year of Charity, as seen through the eyes of students and staff from all across the Toronto Catholic District School Board, made its debut at the 2014 Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, an international celebration of the Arts.
 
"The human hand makes us different from any other being on earth," says Maria Tavares, Project Creator and Team Leader of the Project Reach initiative. "It's what enables us to manipulate our environment, solve problems, and make tools to help unleash our ideas. Our hands can turn our ideas into something tangible, something real, and something we can share. With our hands we can reach out and change our world.

About Project Reach

Project REACH represents the “good hands” of charity and our call to help others. The project is made up of the artistic representations of charity as seen through the eyes of staff and students from the TCDSB’s 201 schools.
 
Each individual art piece is made up of a cube, which will represent a “box of charity.” Each box consists of student authored art and images on 4 sides of the cube to depict ideas of charity, combined with a mannequin hand reaching out from the centre of the front face of the cube.  The hand itself can “hold” an object or sculptural element that helps to communicate the school’s message of charity.
 
All 201 boxes of charity, initially constructed by Giulio DeSantis, John Zambri and their students at Archbishop Romero Catholic Secondary School, were exhibited in a single interactive sculptural installation, enabling viewers to intimately experience this unique display of student talent from every school in the TCDSB, as they walk around and through the sculpture.
