Exhibit: Under the TENT: Envisioning Neighbourhoods Together
When: November 4th, 2013 – January 8th, 2014
Urbanspace Gallery, 401 Richmond Street West, Toronto, ON

Using the City of Toronto’s first pilot Community Planning Board in Scarborough’s Kingston-Galloway-Orton Park neighbourhood as a case study, the exhibit highlights the efforts of those who continue to push City Hall and developers for a place at the table in local planning and development decisions.

Under the TENT reveals an emergent dialogue on participatory planning bodies in Toronto and showcases the extraordinary work of communities across the city to influence the planning and evolution of their own neighbourhoods. Featured organizations include established participatory planning bodies in Manhattan and Glasgow, and effective advocacy groups in Toronto like Active 18, the Lakeshore Planning Council, Alexandra Park Visioning Committee, the Regent Park Revitalization Committee and the emerging Community Action Planning Group in the Jane and Finch neighbourhood.
