The Toronto-Norfolk Abridged Dictionary of Contemporary Cultural Translations

October 1st, 2005

The AGO Teen Council recently partnered with Youth from NACTAC, the Norfolk Arts Centre’s Teen Arts Council to create 3 days of programming in Harbourfront’s Zoom Room space. The two groups of Teens, one from urban Toronto and the other from rural Norfolk began working together in May 2005, and met twice a month for the duration of the project. Together the groups designed a series of installations that reflected the similarities and differences in daily life for youth under 21yrs in rural and urban settings. The culmination of this partnership was presented at Harbourfront Centre this September, 2005 in an interdisciplinary Arts festival for youth called Culture Shock-Voices of an Emerging Generation. The projects presented included The Toronto-Norfolk Abridged Dictionary of Contemporary Cultural Translations, a dictionary of youth slang from Norfolk and Toronto respectively.
