We Are Cities: Artful Citybuilding

Black and white poster with yellow text
Tuesday, June 23, 2015 - 10:00pm to Wednesday, June 24, 2015 - 1:00am

We Are Cities is a campaign to create a new vision and action plan for how we can build livable cities – exciting and healthy places to live, work and play. Roundtables are taking place across the country to establish a vision and action plan for better Canadian Cities.

Art and design are vital building blocks in establishing the vibrancy, sense of identity and economic stability of cities. With that in mind, OCAD University will be hosting a roundtable specifically focused on the role of creative culture in citybuilding.

Speakers will share a variety of viewpoints on the role art and design play in our cities and strategies for supporting and utilizing these industries to build thriving and livable cities. In the discussion to follow, we’ll break into smaller groups to begin to articulate a vision for the artful city and devise tactics to bring this vision to life, asking how governments, institutions, developers, businesses and individuals can better engage and partner with creative communities.
