Location

McCaul Street and Main Building 100 McCaul St., Toronto, Ontario

As part of Luminato’s free public opening weekend, revisit the sights and sounds of a legendary era in Toronto's popular culture.

After Yorkville's "Summer of Love," Toronto's coolest scene moved south to Queen Street and the Ontario College of Art (as it was then known), inspiring collaborations in art and music that, by the mid '80s, had helped create the punk, new wave, and world beat eclectic mix.

On stage, from 1:30 p.m.: Johnny & the G-Rays, The "B" Girls, Mary Margaret O'Hara, The Parachute Club plus Mojah, OCAD Faculty of Liberal Studies Professor Lillian Allen, Micah Barnes and Telmary. Meanwhile, at the Ontario College of Art & Design, from noon, catch a glimpse of period artifacts and photographs, plus a video program extending past 6:30 p.m. with a panel discussion and closing cabaret "Mono Logic" by Andrew J. Paterson.

Created and produced by Martin Robertson, Ideas in Motion.

Associate producer, video and research, Henry Martinuk, in collaboration with the Ontario College of Art & Design.
