The New Art of Suburbia

Once seen as quiet bedroom communities far from the noise of the urban core, Toronto’s inner suburbs have become centres of activity – culturally vibrant, diverse and ever changing.

The New Art of Suburbia, a two-evening panel discussion and forum recorded for podcast, addresses these changes and implications for the arts and culture.

Dealing with changes in the development and urban fabric of Toronto, speakers from a variety of backgrounds tackle pressing questions: What is the nature and role of creative communities in the suburbs? How can we better understand and support arts and cultural activities in the suburbs? How can we create and support a vibrant arts scene in suburban communities?
