Myths and Mirrors is setting out to explore a bold agenda through their art show 'The Masks We Wear' on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at Cambrian College’s Open Studio. 

On the agenda is giving a voice to the transgender community and especially those among them that are questioning their gender identity. 

“I’ve seen participants gain confidence, build friendships, and develop the skills to express themselves through art,”  said Aédan Charest, co-facilitator for ATA.

Founded in 2015 as a collaborative project between Myths and Mirrors and TG Innerselves, Northern Ontario’s transgender support service, ATA's goal was to create a safe, confidential, and inclusive space to explore and make art . 

Alexandra Dean, lead artist ATA says, “ATA is an important program as it provides a safe space for those who attend to be their authentic selves, meet new people, and share a common voice for transgender rights.”

A live painting demonstration by local artist is also in he pipeline for Transgender Day of Remembrance, that takes place on Monday, Nov. 20.
