Sidewalk Stories: Old Meets New
1:30 PM & 4:00 PM (October 15 & 16)
Starting Point: Royal Ontario Museum, East Steps, 100 Queens Park.
Explore over 150 years of unique architectural history in and around the University of Toronto’s St. George campus, delving into how architects have worked around, added to, repaired, adapted, and even relocated some of the earliest structures in the area. Play a game of Heritage Bid as you tour through one of the most remarkable architectural collections in Canada, taking stock of buildings such as the Royal Ontario Museum, the Faculty of Arts and Science, and Robarts Library. Led by our Programming Director, Joël León, this walk will challenge preconceptions of what heritage is and raise questions of how to preserve our past while meeting the needs of the future.
