Earlier this month, I hosted a Ward18 Talks panel discussion focusing on the challenges in creating artist and cultural spaces in our city. Together with panelists including artists, cultural organizations, and the City's Community Planning and Economic Development and Culture Divisions, a wide variety of perspectives, challenges and ideas for solutions were shared.
In addition to the opportunities to share feedback at the event, I have also set up an online feedback survey at www.anabailao.com/artspaces_feedback in order to hear from community members who may not have joined us at the event. I encourage you to take a moment to review the survey and share it with your networks to help inform this important conversation.
In Ward 18 and in neighbourhoods throughout Toronto, these conversations need to continue and are important to making progress in our city. Thank you to everyone for continuing your interest, advocacy and involvement in Toronto's artistic and cultural landscape.
