Myseum of Toronto launches inaugural festival of intersecting perspectives on the city’s diversity
On March 6, 2016 Myseum of Toronto is launching its first annual festival of exhibits exploring the intersecting perspectives of the city’s natural, cultural and historical diversity. The festival presents a wide range of programming that will help Torontonians gain a deeper appreciation of the richness in their city.
Myseum Intersections invites the public to explore the ways in which Toronto’s cultures converge and interact to create new understanding. Participants will include major cultural institutions, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, alongside more recent entities, such as Neilson Park Creative Centre and Heritage Toronto. Programming ranges from historic to contemporary issues presented via exhibits, events and interactive community experiences.
“We’re really excited to see so many cultural organizations and institutions coming together to focus on sharing different perspectives in Toronto. We look forward to seeing Torontonians experience programming throughout all areas of the city,” says Karen Carter, Executive Director, Myseum of Toronto. “These intersections present new ways of illuminating Toronto’s past, understanding its present, and imagining its future.”
Myseum Intersections launches on March 6, 2016 – Toronto’s birthday – at the QRC West Building (362 Richmond Street West) and runs through March 31, 2016.
