Cities are made of all kinds of people, but they’re not built for all of us. Join us for a discussion on issues stemming from inequality in arts, culture, and how we design and build our cities and public spaces. The talk will shed light on the challenges and benefits of what it means to be inclusive and what it will really take to make significant contributions to the generation of a more open, diverse and inclusive society.

Changing Tides: Design Solutions and Art as a Catalyst

Streaming live – Wednesday July 21st – at Future Cities Canada: The Summit.

Climate change is having a resounding impact on our waterways across the globe. Rising sea levels, flooding, erosion and drought are but a few examples of impact felt across the planet. How can art and design help catalyze change and offer creative solutions to these global shifts? A conversation with Matthew Hickey, Two Row Architect, artist and filmmaker Jason van Bruggen, and Netami Stuart, Waterfront Toronto, explores local and international examples of naturalized and engineered landscapes and the ways in which they can protect our water systems.
