ENGAGING IN-BETWEEN SPACES
TORONTO’S SUMMIT ON LANEWAYS
Thursday, Nov 20 2014 6:00pm - 10:00 pm
The Great Hall | 1087 Queen St W
Toronto has more than 2400 publicly owned laneways. Often under-used, deteriorating, and viewed as unsafe, these ‘in-between’ spaces have the potential to become an integral part of our public realm.
The Laneway Project presents: Toronto’s first laneway summit - a Pecha-Kucha-styled event moderated by CBC’s Mary Weins that will look at the potential of our city’s laneways to better understand:
- How we can transform our laneways into more vibrant, safe, and people-friendly spaces.
- Laneways as transportation corridors, green infrastructure, and community gathering spaces
- The cultural and economic potential of laneways
Planners, designers, policy makers, artists, community organizers and laneway lovers from across the City are invited to attend this event featuring presentations by:
- Phil Bliss, BrightLane
- Brandon Donnelly, TAS Design Build
- Mark Garner, Downtown Yonge BIA
- Dylan Reid, Walk Toronto and Spacing
- Victoria Taylor, Taylor Landscape Architect and Jonas Spring, Ecoman
Followed by a moderated discussion between speakers and attendees. Cocktail reception with food, music and a cash bar to follow.
$10 Tickets. Limited seating available.
