The City of Toronto has a list of valiant efforts: the Pan Am buildings in the West Don Lands, Evergreen Brick Works, Regent Park. To what extent have these been urban planning victories? Torontonians can also be excited as they look towards the future, with projects such as East Bayfront underway and “Under Gardiner” on the horizon.
Spur asks how can Toronto build community through creative use of public space; what role should the private sector, government, institutions play in the process; and how is the public voice heard?
This session will be introduced with a performance by poet Phoebe Wang.
