Charities We Support
Not only are the streets beautified through this process, but stories are told and endless information is embedded within the elements painted in the art. Relevant videos, photos and information are instantly populated when a mobile device recognizes the murograph. The Davenports Arts Community strives to be on the forefront of artistic technology, but does this while operating in the spirit of public service. Working with the City of Toronto and our sponsors, the benefits of our projects extend beyond the art we produce to charities that focus on educational technology, mental health, as well as children in need and the elderly.
At the dawn of a new age, merging technology with street art is a chance to start a revolution for both artists and their sponsors in a way never before possible. Cities such as Paris, Rome and Barcelona became world renowned because of the ancient European Renaissance. The great artists that crafted sculptures, paintings changed the way people view the world. Now, it’s time for the City of Toronto to define itself with images of legendary figures that come to life within it’s streets. By incorporating augmented reality and interactive animation into mural designs (murography), otherwise drab city walls will come to life and the masses will once again be guided to view the world in a whole new way. During the next few hundred years, cities like Toronto will define their identity through this fantastic movement.
Our branding is a tribute to one of Canada’s most ancient pathways. Davenport Road was a trail set out by native tribes as a route between the Don and Humber Rivers, it developed into a trading route for French and British merchants during the European Renaissance.
500 years later, the biggest movement in art history has become the Street Art Movement. The Davenport Arts Community is symbol of a modern renaissance for the city, through the works of its world class talents Toronto is at the vanguard, represented by a pioneering spirit.
