This is an update to my previous blog Canadian Consultations on Cultural Spaces in Toronto: Your Input is Required May 22-June 17, 2012.
The Making Space for Culture project is a recommendation of the Creative Capital Gains Report, endorsed by Toronto City Council in 2011, for the following reasons:
- City of Toronto in Ontario, Canada, aims to supply “affordable, sustainable cultural space” for use by cultural industries, not-for-profit organizations and community groups
- The upgrade and/or development of facilities for small and mid-size organizations and community cultural groups is a critical next step to ensure a vibrant cultural community
- There is a need to develop and enhance cultural spaces in neighborhoods throughout the City to ensure that all Torontonians have access to spaces to learn, play, practice, and engage with arts and culture of all forms
