City Doctors (not actual doctors) is an interactive, satirical project which positions a collective of local artists as expert advisors on how to live in cities. Welcoming all queries from visiting participants to their public pop up clinics, the members of EQUΔLΔTERΔL prescribe idiosyncratic and highly subjective advice on how best to navigate the physical, social and everyday complexities of our shared urban landscape.
Following a one-on-one consultation with a city doctor, participants walk away with a personalized set of instructions for how to troubleshoot their urban quandaries and maximize the experience of living in the city.
City Doctors (not actual doctors) has been presented as part of HOW WE LIVE IN CITIES at BIG on Bloor Festival (July 2016), at the Danforth East Laneway Crawl (August 2016), at Christie Crawlfest (September 2016) and Etobicoke Lakeshore Culture Days (September 2017) in collaboration with Lakeshore Arts and Humber College Applied Research and Innovation.
City Doctors (not actual doctors) is featured in Emergency INDEX Volume 6 published by Ugly Duckling Presse.
