Panel Discussion: Artists and City Building

  • 206 Accolade West (ACW), York University 89 York Boulevard North York, ON, M3J 2S5 Canada (map)

Presented/Organized by symposium organizers


Instead of being involved in only the final 1%, how can artists be engaged from an early stage of public and private developments and/or in a continued and sustained way afterwards? The panelists will present and discuss ideas that can help to chart a new path forward for how artists’ role in city-building can be reconsidered and expanded within existing frameworks.

Moderated by: Helena Grdadolnik, Public Art Consultant and Director, Workshop Architecture

Panelists: Michael McClelland, ERA Architects; artists Sans façon; artists Jennifer Marman & Daniel Borins; Jonah Letovsky, Westbank Corp; Bryan Newson, former Public Art Program Manager, City of Vancouver
