Welcome to Toronto! This vibrant metropolis also known as the 6ix has risen to fame for its bright lights and big-city persona, but if you look a little closer you will find that hidden gems really are dotted right across the city. We connected with Andrea Nann from Dreamwalker Dance Company to find all the best places to see, experience, and celebrate art during the Ontario Culture Days festival. 

Andrea gave us a closer look at the west end of Toronto, letting us in on some of their current community projects and giving us a mini-history lesson about the vibrant arts and culture spaces that are now being preserved for future artistic developments.

Check out some of our top picks for events happening in Toronto:

  • For the Ontario Culture Days festival, the Dreamwalker Dance Company will be launching chapter one of the Welcome Project: Sharing Stories. The project brings individuals together virtually through a creative process of movement and sound, to empower isolated populations.
  • National Ballet School and Vibe Arts have put together a collection of digital Q&A’s, classes, and performances.
  • Canadian Stage has dance performances in High Park between October 3 and 11; and pianist Fern Lindzon is at the Royal Conservatory of Music on Oct 4.
