Event Details

Calling all creatives!


In response to Next Door: A Skeleton Park Neighbourhood Art Project,
the Union Gallery and Skeleton Park Arts Festival invite all community
members within and beyond the Skeleton Park neighbourhood to create a
work of art in front of their homes for a city-wide community art
initiative #MyDoorYGK


At the onset of the pandemic, many talented creatives began to display
artworks from their residence—on front doors, from windows, across
balconies, porches and lawns—motivating the project Next Door.
Art became an even more powerful way to connect, inspire and bring hope
during a moment when we were all so suddenly disconnected from one
another—and to engage with art in an open space, at a safe distance and
at one’s own pace.


All members of the community are encouraged to participate in this
collective action by creating a work of art and displaying it to the
public from their residence. #MyDoorYGK is about expressing creativity and responding to Next Door artist projects—artworks can take any form you wish, using whatever materials are available to you!


We want to share your creations and extend the footprint of temporary public art across Katarokwi/Kingston. Tag
the Union Gallery and Skeleton Park Arts Festival on whatever platform
you are using and include the
hashtag #MyDoorYGK or send us a photo of your artwork via DM or to


A few guidelines to follow: practice social distancing and follow all
municipal mandates in place at the time of creation and display of your
artwork; avoid creating enclosed spaces or work that promotes physical
contact; present artworks that are viewable from the street or sidewalk;
no hate speech or derogatory images; artwork created remains the
property of the creator, and they are solely responsible for the
artwork; use materials that are non-hazardous; do not disrupt sidewalks,
public spaces or other’s property without permission.
