Animating Historic Sites is a partnership with City of Toronto Museums and Heritage Services and with Evergreen Brick Works. The goals of the program are to serve as a catalyst for people to see and think about historic places differently, and to provide alternative methods of historic interpretation. This program positions historic sites as vital public spaces, where the past provides creative context for the future. I invite you to come to one of our site tours or information sessions and to contact me for further information if you might be interested in submitting an application. Please share with artists you think might be interested!
