About the Welcome Project:

The Welcome Project is a significant priority and an exciting legacy project of the ROM's Love the ROM Centennial Campaign. It will offer many benefits to the City and its residents, and create additional opportunities for the Museum to connect and engage visitors with its world-renowned collections and leading curators. One of the key elements of the project will be a new outdoor space that will include the plaza area from Philosopher's Walk east along Bloor Street West to the corner of Queens Park. Designed by acclaimed Toronto architectural firm, Hariri Pontarini Architects with Claude Cormier + Associés, this dynamic urban greening project will provide the community with beautiful biodiversity gardens, outdoor public programming, and open-air performance space.

As we develop plans for this vibrant, new outdoor space, we have consulted individually with key stakeholders in the Bloor/Yorkville area and government partners. As a next step, we would like to engage our neighbours in a dialogue at a Community Town Hall taking place on Monday, May 12, 2014 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM in the ROM's Samuel Hall Currelly Gallery.

The event will include a Q&A session with ROM Senior Management and Hariri Pontarini Architects. To ensure all voices are heard, those unable to attend in person are invited to submit questions at by May 7, 2014.

We invite you to be part of the process and hope to see you at the ROM on May 12, 2014.
