Calling all couples in Toronto! On Saturday September 9th, singer songwriter Tim Arnold travels to Toronto with photographer Andy Fallon to shoot a Canadian version of What Love Would Want. The new video will feature couples from Canada to accompany a new version of the song. To participate with your partner in this video on Saturday September 9th please contact [email protected].
‘What Love Would Want’ is a new song by UK solo artist Tim Arnold (watch the original video here). It’s also a multimedia creative project encompassing a music video directed by Arnold and a series of photographic portraits by UK photographer Andy Fallon that celebrate the diversity and inclusivity of love, all inspired by the song.
The birth of the project began on a single day in London Soho, April 2017 which welcomed over thirty couples – straight, gay, lesbian, trans, mixed race, interracial – and of all ages. The song and the video have since received numerous accolades in the media and gone on to support Amnesty International’s campaign Love Is A Human Right. This September, the project will be re-created in one of the most diverse cities in the world: Toronto.
We are looking for REAL couples of the Canadian LGBTQI community as well as straight, mixed race and interracial couples of all ages who would like to take part in this new music video. We also hope to inspire couples from the indigenous community to take part. This is about inclusivity. Integration – not separation.
If you are in a couple and would like to celebrate your relationship in this beautiful art project, please send a photo of yourself and your partner to [email protected] with WHAT LOVE WOULD WANT CANADA in the subject, so that we may repeat building up our collage of love. If you know a couple you would like to put forward for this project, please do pass on this information.
You and your partner would only need to attend the shoot for 15 minutes at a time of your choosing between 12pm and 8pm on Saturday 9th September at Chartreuse Studio, 401 Richmond Street West at Spadina Ave, Toronto. Tim Arnold will film your ‘moving’ portrait for the video and photographer Andy Fallon will photograph your still portrait.
This project is 100% independent and funded entirely by love and the belief that love is a human right.
