IdeasCity Toronto will take place on September 15, 2018 in partnership with The Bentway, and feature an interactive day of performances, discussions, workshops, and pitches of ideas for the future of the city.

Twenty years after the Amalgamation of the City of Toronto, how are the city’s neighborhoods thriving and how do they bring energy to a whole? What challenges and opportunities can be found within the cultural, economic, and infrastructural properties of the amalgamated city?

From 1:00 to 9:00 PM, guests will be invited to attend panel discussions around the notion of “City of Cities”, participate in intimate workshops with practicing experts in the realms of art, design, and urban planning, and offer their opinions on pitch presentations for future interventions in Toronto’s public space. Throughout the day there will be performances by local artists engaged in conversations about art and social justice, and food catered by Toronto-based immigrant kitchens.

IdeasCity Toronto will take place at The Bentway, a unique and innovative public space that transforms 1.75km underneath Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway into a new gathering place for the city.
