Face Up was an interaction with a group of newly arrived students to Greenwood Secondary School in Toronto. The purpose of this project was to creatively integrate the Hungarian Roma students into the wider school population. The goals were to counter disengagement, absenteeism and indifference to formal schooling. MAMC facilitated a novel art-based activity that offered personal relevance through an interactive and lively social encounter.
Eugene Beck, the photographer who has documented all MAMC’s projects, did a remarkable photoshoot of all the students providing wonderful images to work from. MAMC worked closely with each student on a series of self-portraits that reflected their enthusiasm. The result, total buy in and a series of artworks that each student was extremely proud to call their own.
