We’re very proud that The World in Ten Blocks has been featured in Making Peace Toronto as one of the installations in the “pop-up” gallery at 480 Front St E, which will be open daily from May 13 to June 30, 2017.

Making Peace is an international multi-year event centred on a large outdoor photographic exhibition “that pays tribute to the people who — all over the planet — devote their time, energy and resources to the cause of peace”. As part of The World in Ten Blocks installation, attendees will add their own journeys to an interactive origins map that will be filled in by visitors over the course of the exhibition. The installation includes The World in Ten Blocks Interactive on four iPads for visitors to explore at their own pace as well as a big screen presentation of The World in Ten Blocks film.

For one beautiful night, La Bella Managua, Canada’s only Nicaraguan restaurant and one of Toronto’s hidden culinary gems, was transformed into a special live event, installation, and celebration of The World in Ten Blocks.

Between 7pm and 7am, hundreds of attendees were able to sample Nicaraguan street food, meet some of the documentary’s participants in person, and add their own immigration journey to a collective map that took shape over the course of the night.
