Making space for creativity takes ingenuity and dogged determination in the best of times. Today, it is harder than ever. Many cities are in the midst of unprecedented affordability crises driven by overheated 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—and there are no silver-bullet solutions. There are, however, innovative new approaches, and Toronto has been at the forefront of many of them. On this tour, you will encounter Artscape, a global leader in creative placemaking, a practice that leverages arts and culture as a catalyst for community and urban development.

Tour Cost: US$125 per person, which includes lunch.
