Location

XPACE Cultural Centre 58 Ossington Ave., Toronto, Ontario

Canadian design has often not been recognized as more than this idea of the Great White North. However, there is more to be acknowledged than just these romanticized notions of the country's natural landscape. This panel will be a discussion on the material culture of Canada both historically and at present, and will discuss the innovative work that Canadian designers have accomplished at home and overseas.

Funded by the Ontario Arts Council.
