When I was thirteen, I had a season pass to Ontario Place and for that summer I visited the site almost every single day. From mini golf to water park to log ride and everything in between, I can still remember all their details vividly. Since 2011, the space has been left idle and because city officials have yet to commit to a plan for its future, so nature still reigns over the site and the gates remain locked. Like other Torontonians, I was anxious and worried that I won’t be able to set foot on the grounds again. Luckily, artists and curators Rui Pimento and Layne Hinton was inspired by the site’s rough around the edges un-manicured state and they envisioned a transformative art experience to be held in Ontario Place. Along with a team of artists, musicians, organizers, and partners, Rui and Layne brought in/future to life. The ten day festival runs until September 25th and is worth a visit or ten. Get ready for mesmerizing art installations, captivating musical performances and fun food trucks.Read More
