This art exhibit was developed by Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) in partnership with Evergreen and Crazy Dames.

Artists submitted their proposals through an open call and were selected by a juried panel.

The exhibition is intended to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue about the issues outlined in The Living City® Report Card, inspire innovative and creative thinking about environmental issues within our communities, and reimagine how we can collaborate to realize a sustainable future for the Toronto region.
