About the event
Organized by the City of Toronto and the Government of Quebec, this virtual symposium will celebrate Toronto’s impressive existing public art collection while discussing the future role of art and artists. Keynote speakers, panelists, and industry leaders will discuss pandemic recovery and building back better, stronger, specifically the essential role of the cultural and creative sectors within urban areas. Public art is at the heart of a city’s development and vitality; by reimagining and animating public spaces, cities can bring people back to plazas, main streets, and neighbourhoods that were severely impacted by the pandemic.
