Kensington Market - Hidden Histories

The Challenge

Students in Digital Tools in a Canadian Context, coordinated by the Siobhan researched into 32 physical sites in the market, buildings, and lots, looking for archival traces of past residents and business over the past 200+ years.

The Solution

As they worked with digital and archival research tools, coding, and quantitative analysis the solution found was to archive in a unique AR app for mobile produced by Paulo Ramos, developer, Camille Gautier, arts and UI, and Emily Smith executive producer.

The Results

The U of T students received the Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Youth Achievement from the Ontario Heritage trust 2017.
