The Bloor St. Culture Corridor is thrilled to announce that the City of Toronto has designated Bloor St. West, between Bathurst and Bay streets, a City of Toronto cultural corridor!
We are proud to be the first officially designated Toronto cultural corridor ever to have been created by the cultural community rather than urban development and city planning. The City of Toronto adopted it into effect at the City Council meeting as of October 5, 2016.
The Estonian Studies Centre/VEMU has been recognized (amongst other organizations and businesses) as being an integral part of this partnership.
City Councillor Joe Cressy said, "Culture is at the very heart of this corridor. Within the neighbourhood, arts and culture have always been there, and the Bloor St. Culture Corridor has put a stamp on it. This is tremendous for the city, it's tremendous for the organizations who have long given life and vibrancy to the corridor, and for our residents as well. This is an arts district for the whole City of Toronto."
