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.
