NEW DATES:  August 20-28, 2016

Art of the Danforth is returning this summer! 

The multidisciplinary, experimental public art event continues its investigation into the neighbourhood, its communities, the past, the possibilities, and the future with the fourth edition of the festival, running August 20-28, 2016. Under the direction of returning Artistic Director Asad Raza, the theme for this year’s event is ‘Neighbourhood Tectonics’, which imagines projects taking place inside a crack in a seemingly solid structure created by the interaction of opposing forces. Art of the Danforth is produced by East End Arts in collaboration with East Danforth Creative Collective.
