Building Communities


What If More Neighbourhoods Were Designed For Inclusive Space?

Come challenge the way you think about Toronto as a tolerant city and imagine a queerer more inclusive future.

What If All Communities Could Be Steps Away from Rapid Transit?

Carolyn Kim will draw on the research showing why we need to keep pushing for even more communities around transit.

What If Toronto's Diaspora Were Better Represented In Arts & Literature?

Toronto's neighbourhoods are full of diverse groups of people. What if we turned up the volume for underrepresented communities?

Central is excited to partner with The Bentway to continue our mission to educate residents through expert analysis of urban issues with a free weekly speaker series called Central Talks at The Bentway starting Tuesday, September 18 and continuing until October 2.

The Bentway is a unique and innovative public space located at 250 Fort York Blvd. that transforms 1.75km underneath Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway into a new gathering place for our city’s growing population.

The new Strachan Amphitheatre will provide the ideal venue to bring together residents of surrounding communities to explore alternate histories, potential futures and fanciful ideas for pressing urban issues under the theme ​If, But, What If.

We're always looking for outstanding speakers to discuss urban issues, present their research, and uncover hidden trends. Learn more and be a speaker this fall.
