    This third installment of Waterfront Toronto’s FUTURE CITIES talk series is hosted in collaboration with author and placemaker, Jay Pitter. As a powerful proponent of inclusive city-building, Pitter transforms the Toronto Reference Library’s Bram and Bluma Appel Salon into a more “homey” space that she describes as her public living room.

FUTURE CITIES draws on a diverse and interdisciplinary cast of experts, innovators, and community leaders who are known for pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo. We invite them to present big ideas that address topics, challenges, intersecting critical themes, and questions that Toronto and other major metropolises are facing as they continue to grow, densify, and diversify. This edition of FUTURE CITIES is presented in partnership with Toronto Public Library Speakers include: Asmaa Malik Mirlo Liendo Dean Goodman Tura Cousins Wilson With a special performance by: Matthew Progress REGISTER HERE: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/future-cities-3-home-not-housing-tickets-42795899688

    Listening Choir is a project that takes participants on listening walks in public spaces. Join artists Christopher Willes and Adam Kinner for an audio tour in the West Don Lands that considers how sounds intersect the histories, policies, and affects embedded within city spaces. Throughout the walk each participant carries a small cardboard loudspeaker, which plays localized sounds along the way. These sounds are choreographed (listened to) in various ways throughout the walk, evoking the immediate past, the sonic dislocation of objects and voices onto others, and the folding of histories and places on top of one another. Agreeing to drift without speaking, audiences are led into an encounter with a continually fractured soundscape that reflects on notions of public space, citizenship, and how a city changes. Thursday, September 14 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, September 16 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, September 16 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday, September 17 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Visit https://www.facebook.com/events/1890902131167466/ for more info.

    Listening Choir is a project that takes participants on listening walks in public spaces. Join artists Christopher Willes and Adam Kinner for an audio tour in the West Don Lands that considers how sounds intersect the histories, policies, and affects embedded within city spaces. Throughout the walk each participant carries a small cardboard loudspeaker, which plays localized sounds along the way. These sounds are choreographed (listened to) in various ways throughout the walk, evoking the immediate past, the sonic dislocation of objects and voices onto others, and the folding of histories and places on top of one another. Agreeing to drift without speaking, audiences are led into an encounter with a continually fractured soundscape that reflects on notions of public space, citizenship, and how a city changes. Thursday, September 14 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, September 16 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, September 16 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday, September 17 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Visit https://www.facebook.com/events/1890902131167466/ for more info.

    Free community workshops inspired by the Ballroom culture of Voguing, combined with Yoga Postures and self-affirming written and vocal exercises to build confidence and creative self-loving expression at Underpass Park. Voguing for Vitality is a series of public, participatory workshops that harness the power of Voguing to help participants find their own meaningful and purposeful existence. Come uplift yourself and remember that Vitality is your Birthright! Drawing on the rich tradition of Voguing – established in the 1980s through the Harlem Ballroom Scene by Black & Latin queer communities – workshops will draw on this freestyle form that uniquely fuses modelling, theatre, and dance. Lead artist Robert Halley will be joined by guest artists to guide participants through a celebration of the many facets of life and human diversity, perfect for the cosmopolitan array of people in Toronto. Fuelled by our heart’s imagination, participants will explore musical rhythm, aerobic warm up, fun character acting role-play, modelling, poise, eye-contact, strutting the catwalk (with a rack of clothing and props to choose from) and geometric arm coordination patterns (think human Tetris). Halley’s unique background as a professional dancer and certified yoga teacher and health coach takes the class “beyond the sass” to incorporate exercises that are structured and guided to empower confidence, explore self-expression, and surrender to gracious self-love. Yoga asana ‘power posturing’ and ‘positive affirmation vocal scripting’ will help reinforce positive, confident feelings about who you authentically are or want to be.

    Queens Quay is a new kind of street for Toronto. Before the revitalization, there was no space allocated to cyclists, and very little for pedestrians. The reconfigured street replaces two lanes of vehicular traffic with a wide promenade and extension of the Martin Goodman Trail. Join us on this tour and learn more about the history of the Queens Quay Revitalization project. This is a 90-minute tour. We'll meet at the Simcoe WaveDeck (just west of Lower Simcoe and Queens Quay) and then move east to Bay Street. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE EVENT HERE: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/a-walk-along-the-revitalized-queens-quay-tickets-34519555921 Note: Dates are subject to change and you should register to receive updates via Eventbrite.

    An inspiring public art program is an essential component of a successful public realm – at least that’s what we believe. As the West Don Lands was designed, Waterfront Toronto considered public art from the early planning stages. The results of this big picture thinking are obvious: meaningful opportunities for artists have resulted in meaningful artwork for the public. The artists engaged big ideas and big effort, and the results are tremendous. Join us on this tour and learn how the West Don Lands public art collection creates connections and tells the story of the area’s heritage. This is a 90-minute tour. We'll begin at Underpass Park and then move west to Cherry Street, south to Front Street and back east to end at Corktown Common.

This time around our speakers will tackle a broad range of topics that touch on themes loosely related to making social impact. As always, FUTURE CITIES challenges urbanists, culture-makers, advocates and citizens to reimagine what it means to be a “City Builder.” The series draws on experts and innovators who are known for pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo.

Together with our government partners, we will officially break ground on a series of dynamic new public spaces made possible by the construction of a new underground parking facility in the heart of Toronto’s waterfront. The revitalization of York Quay at Harbourfront Centre is a multi-phased project that is transforming the area into an even more dynamic waterfront destination. In phase one, Waterfront Toronto and Harbourfront Centre dramatically improved the water’s edge by widening the promenade, adding a wooden boardwalk and constructing two new finger piers. Phase two saw the construction of a new underground garage that replaced a surface parking lot. The next phase, which is currently underway, includes the creation of two new public squares on a 1.4 hectare site between Queens Quay and Lake Ontario.
