The Toronto the Good 2015 eleventh annual public party was a huge success. Hundreds of people attended and there was great music, dancing, free hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and a lively crowd of people passionate about design and democracy in Toronto.
ERA has been privileged to host and co-host this party over the years, each year based on a different theme. Last year was centred on the past Toronto municipal election and was co-hosted by Dave Meslin and RaBIT, who have been leading voices advocating for the fascinating idea of ranked ballot municipal voting in Toronto.
This year Toronto the Good, in partnership with The Cultural Landscape Foundation, presented the Second Wave of Modernism III: Leading with Landscape conference. This Second Wave of Modernism conference, the third instalment and largest to date, hosted innovative thinkers in the field of landscape architecture to tackle issues such as ‘what does it mean for a 21st-century city to be historic and modern at the same time? – and stewardship – what new models for public/private financing and management are emerging?’
A big thanks to ERA’s Sonya Tytor, DJ Mensa, photographer Catherine Mombourquette, the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation, The Cultural Landscape Foundation, the Fermenting Cellar and the Distillery District.
And, of course, thank you to all of our good friends and guests. Stay tuned for next year’s party!
