A CITY OF INTERSECTIONS

Multiple Perspectives on the Ward

Join us for a conversation that that explores diverse perspectives on The Ward, Toronto’s historic immigrant neighbourhood. From growing up in Chinatown as a third-generation Chinese Canadian to understanding The Ward through the lens of Lawren Harris to recognizing how representations of The Ward often differed from reality, this discussion will highlight reoccurring and intertwined themes of gentrification, city building, and social justice in Toronto.

Panelists:

Arlene Chan, author and third-generation Chinese Canadian raised in Toronto’s Chinatown
Andrew Hunter, Fredrik S. Eaton Curator, Canadian Art, Art Gallery of Ontario
Anique Jordan, Artist
Paul Bishop, Daniel Panneton & Marisa Strom, Curators of “The Ward: Representations and Realities, 1890-1950” at Campbell House Museum
