As many of us are on many social networks now, we thought it might be fun to combine Instagram and storying-telling together. We’ve put together a list of themes and ideas that we want you to capture over the next 9 weeks and post in Instagram or Twitter. Think of it as a community scavenger hunt!
What will be happening and how can you get involved?
Each week we will post a new theme that we want you find in your East Side neighbourhood and take a photo of it. A dedicated page will be published for the weekly challenges in our East Side Story project at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche on October 3, 2015 in St. James Park. The photos will be selected weekly to have it featured on the ‘Instafeatured-gram’ page. Here’s how to take part:
- SNAP – Focus in and take a picture
- TELL – Tell us why you took the shot. Don’t forget to tell us where it is!
- SHARE – Upload your photos to Instagram or Twitter and tag us: @dia_space / #imaginaryTO
- June 29 – July 5: Something new
- July 6 – 12: Something old

When stumped on the list, she was more mindful and had greater appreciation at what her community had to offer.
Here are some captured shots from Linda’s adventure…
