From May through October 2017, the Cultural Hotspot initiative will shine a spotlight on arts, culture and community in East York; inspiring new ideas about where culture thrives in Toronto. The Cultural Hotspot is bordered by Eglinton to the north, Lake Ontario to the south, Bayview Avenue/the Don Valley to the west and Victoria Park Avenue to the east.
The Cultural Hotspot:
- Celebrates local culture, heritage, creativity, business and community with special events, festivals and art happenings, building community pride
- Connects the Hotspot community, promotes new partnerships and shares this exciting area with all of Toronto through community gatherings, events, outreach and media campaigns
- Grows creative capacity in the area with workshops, courses, youth employment and mentorship, and legacy projects like the Cultural Loops Guide
