The Patient Built Wall Tour tonight at 6pm is guided by Geoffrey Reaume and will kick off Mad Pride Week 2009.
The purpose of this tour is to remember the contributions of the men and women who lived, worked, and died in the Toronto Hospital for the Insane. This is represented by the nineteenth century patient build boundary walls, which stand as an enduring testament to their abilities and a monument to their memory. We hold up this past symbol of exclusion to challenge the discrimination that is experienced today by people who have a psychiaatric history.
Following the Tour will be a Memorial to pay tribute to those who went before us. Organizers ask guests to bring words that lend meaning to the moment. Candles will be lit.
Please join us for this fascinating tour.
