When it comes to renewal, few Toronto neighbourhoods can boast as amazing of a story and share so many valuable lessons as Harbourfront. A pioneer in waterfront revitalization, what was once a derelict industrial site dominated by underused warehouses and parking lots, is now a place where culture, recreation, commerce and living come together at the water’s edge. At the heart of this decades-long transformation has been Harbourfront Centre, a 10-acre cultural campus that has proved the power of the arts to lead change and innovation for the betterment of our city.    

Join us for a walk as we take a stroll through this cultural campus and share the stories of its remarkable transformation through its buildings and landscapes. Along the way we will see how old industrial buildings and spaces have been cleverly repurposed into some of the city’s leading cultural venues, and discuss the role art and culture have played in catalysing change along the harbourfront. We will also talk about the imaginative landscapes that seek to reconnect Torontonians with Lake Ontario and ongoing efforts to restore the natural health of our harbour.
