Water and the City: Revitalizing Our Urban Spaces

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:45pm

Evergreen Brickworks, 550 Bayview Avenue, Toronto

Special FREE screening in partnership with Evergreen!

What can we do about our urban water in Toronto?

Don't miss this chance to see 7 fascinating short films on urban watersheds at Evergreen Brickworks. Although rivers and waterfronts are critical to the health of cities, many are in need of revitalization or transformation. From Saint John to Milwaukee to San Francisco and others, these films share glimpses of the inspiring journeys of individuals and groups as they took very different actions to protect their water, often against substantial odds.

Location:  The BMO Atrium at Evergreen Brickworks / HOW TO GET THERE / The Evergreen shuttle bus to Broadview subway station will be extended until 10:00pm.
