City planning is becoming increasingly important as communities want to protect their local heritage and cultural hubs. As we see development across Toronto and with big planning changes afoot at the Province, how can we remain engaged in community planning? How do we create and support urban spaces that are meaningful to us? Who decides what is meaningful? What makes the Village a village?
It Takes A Village is a campaign to protect and promote cultural and heritage spaces. It explores deep questions about culture and heritage and offers information on the local planning process. We hope the campaign will energize and empower residents to take a more proactive approach in neighbourhood planning.
Bringing together planners, heritage architects, artists, and culture keepers, this panel will explore the meaning of cultural and heritage spaces to our communities. What they look like, if development disrupts culture and heritage, and how preserving culture happens in actual practice. On May 27, 2021, join Councillor Wong-Tam in discussion with experts and advocates as they discuss protecting and preserving culture and heritage in Toronto. #ItTakesAVillage
When: Thursday, May 27th, 2021
