10 Historic City Neighbourhoods in Myseum of Toronto
Ten of Toronto, an exhibition that will highlight 10 Toronto neighbourhoods, has begun at the Myseum of Toronto. Residents and tourists can investigate how geography, economy, immigration, finance, urban growth, culture, inequality, and social values have influenced the city’s neighbourhoods until April 30.
They believe that through examining important topics and themes in the city, both historically and currently, visitors may wonder what makes each of our neighbourhoods special. And what matters as we coexist, collaborate, and have fun while forming our city. They encourage tourists to find out more about Toronto and to interact with one another by sharing city tales.
Themes and neighbourhoods included in the exhibition are: • Topography and landscape (Danforth); • Victorian Toronto (Allan Gardens); • Arrival City (Little Manila); • Streetcar suburbs (Earlscourt), • Tower neighbourhoods (Thorncliffe); • Tkaronto (Baby Point); • Queer Toronto (Queen West); • Wealth (Casa Loma); • Factories (Golden Mile); • and Workers (East York).
Tatum Taylor Chaubal and John Lorinc collaborated on the exhibition design for Ten of Toronto, which also featured work by Erik Skouris and Matthew Hickey of Two Row Architect and elsonstudio.
Ten of Toronto includes artefacts from each neighbourhood as well as historical allusions. Through music, a writing wall, and participation activities, visitors may engage with the exhibition and learn more about their own neighbourhood.
