Join us in shaping the next Cultural Hotspot – a project that celebrates culture, creativity & community in East York.

From May through October 2017, the Cultural Hotspot program will shine a spotlight on arts, culture, and community in East York; inspiring new ideas about where culture thrives in Toronto. This City of Toronto and partner-produced initiative will feature a series of signature projects that include visual arts, performance, youth mentorship and employment, and more.
