Summary

Toronto has embraced culture as one of its strongest assets and like many other cities has created strategies to foster cultural industries and districts, commercial and not-for-profit arts organizations, and community-engaged art practices. The explosion of arts offerings, from large international festivals to cutting edge alternative work, reflects the cultural diversity, depth and sophistication of arts practices present in the city. This cultural wealth makes Toronto an exciting place to live, work and visit. The Toronto Arts Council Foundation (TACF) believes that community-engaged art is a vital element in creative city building and in the development of successful, healthy, safe neighbourhoods and should be recognized as such by city planners and community developers.
