On Tuesday June 5th, youth from Notre Dame School will take Professor William Starling on a guided walking tour of the James North area of downtown Hamilton. Having only recently relocated to Hamilton, the good professor is keen to find out more about his new neighbourhood from the perspective of homeless and street involved youth, to see what they see as the positive and negative spaces of the core and what challenges they face in an area that is going through significant transformation. Starlings are an invasive species, and often considered a pest, and so the professor is interested in public perceptions of other marginalized communities and wants to learn more about the realities such groups face and and how they adapt to changing environments.
Professor Starling will be out and about on Friday June 8th for the monthly Art Crawl to share what he has learned and youth guides will present their ideas and findings at the Urban Arts Initiative Gallery at 126 James North.
