Toronto begins next round of Making Space for Culture consultations
From October 4 through October 24, the City will roll out its ward-based consultation and planning process to assess community needs for affordable and sustainable cultural spaces.

The consultations will help provide Councillors, and those investing in cultural infrastructure, with insight about the needs and priorities of each ward.

Residents are invited to attend the consultations and to offer their input about their neighbourhood's cultural infrastructure. Feedback about topics such as public participation in cultural activities and accessibility to cultural spaces will help guide potential future investment. Examples of culture spaces and infrastructure could include performance venues for music, theatre or dance; art galleries and studios; and rehearsal spaces.

Twenty ward consultations are being conducted in 2012. Residents who miss, or are unable to attend the consultations, can participate in an online survey. The survey and a complete list of October consultation locations and additional information is available at:

The Making Space for Culture project is a recommendation of the Creative Capital Gains Report, endorsed by Toronto City Council in 2011.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
