Artscape – Creative Placemaking Symposium

WalkShops were used to help Artscape explore processes of neighbourhood change in Toronto's West Queen West.

In 2018, the Dept of Words & Deeds programmed and led a participatory WalkShop with key resource people offering insights into the process of development and neighbourhood change in the West Queen West neighbourhood. Artscape’s Creative Placemaking Lab is an innovation department at Artscape focused on leveraging art and culture for community development.
