Study Tour 2018

Innovations in Creative Space & Placemaking

June 4 to 8, 2018 in Toronto

Making space for creativity takes ingenuity and dogged determination at the best of times. Today it is harder than ever. Many cities are in the midst of unprecedented affordability crises driven by over-heated real estate markets. In 2016, the World Cities Culture Forum declared this challenge to be one of the biggest threats to culture in global cities. There are no silver-bullet solutions. There are, however, innovative new approaches–and Toronto has been at the forefront of many of them.

Hosted by Artscape in association with the City of Toronto and World Cities Culture Forum, Innovations in Creative Space and Placemaking has been designed to help leaders unlock the creative potential of their communities.
