Lorraine Segato And Regent Park

Wednesday, 20 August 2014 09:58

Over the last decade or so, one of the neighborhoods in Toronto that has undergone the most dramatic transformation, in both infrastructure and swagger, is Regent Park.

Toronto Community Housing Corp, the community itself along with various partners including The Daniels Corporation have come together to create a diverse, mixed income neighborhood. The area that was once home to one of North America’s largest housing projects is now a social and artistic hub.

Multidisciplinary artist and social justice crusader, Lorraine Segato has just been appointed as the area’s first artist in residence. The honorary position was created by The Daniels Corporation. Listen to the full story here:
