12 Ward-based Meetings on Toronto’s Making Space for Culture project from June 10 to July 9

  • The Making Space for Culture project is a recommendation of the Creative Capital Gains Report, which Toronto City Council endorsed in 2011
  • These ward-based public consultations have the following objectives:
    • To assess community needs for affordable and sustainable cultural space for use by cultural industries, not-for-profit organizations and community groups

    • To help provide councillors and those investing in cultural infrastructure with insight into individual wards’ needs and priorities

    • To seek residents’ input about their neighbourhood’s cultural infrastructure:

      • Input on topics such as public participation in cultural activities and accessibility to cultural spaces will help guide potential future investment

      • Examples of culture spaces and infrastructure include, for example, performance venues for music, theatre or dance, art galleries and studios, and rehearsal spaces

  • Here is an itinerary of the 12 ward-based meetings:
