Main Squared festival

I'm excited to be co-curating this festival in my neighbourhood with a talented group of artists.

Main Squared is a 9-day arts and community festival that will activate and explore the public square at the corner of Main Street and Danforth Avenue in Toronto from August 26 – September 3, 2017.

Drawing inspiration and insight from historical “public squares” while tapping into community aspirations, the festival invites residents, community members, and the general public to reimagine the square as a space for social engagement, discourse, and civic activism.

Artists: kipjones, Paul Chartrand, Ernestine Aying & Ryan Phyper, Emily DiCarlo, Aaron Hendershott, Emily Harrison & Tara Dorey, TIMEANDDESIRE, Erika James, DJ Mini, Sean Smith, Kanchan Quinlan, and Vivian Wong.

Presented by East End Arts
Contemporary art projects are curated by Labspace Studio.
