Art and literature are boundar y-changers\, moving beyond domains defined by society to provoke new system s of thought and social exchange. Citizens of Mississauga are key participa nts to engage in the story of the city as seen and experienced from multipl e points of view.

Roots and Branches is an innovative Artist-in-Residenc e project which aims to tap into the communities of Mississauga \, to conne ct arts and literature with socially based art projects rooted in experimen tation.

The artists are not making art in the library – rather\, the art ists are using the site of the library as a source for conversation\, dialo gue and new media to engage citizens about the city\, life and ideas.  The art is the process and the final material manifestation cumulating in a com munity presentation and exhibition at the AGM.  This project does not privi lege one experience over another – rather it supports\, encourages and dema nds multiple backgrounds and voices for its success and determined outcomes .
