2018 Public Space Incubator recipientes
Support to re-imagine Toronto’s public spaces
With increasing densities and challenges in creating new public spaces, we need to creatively make the most of every space in our city. Toronto is seeing a growing interest in innovative ways to inhabit and enliven our public spaces and find new ones.
We’re looking for people who have bold, creative, and radical ideas for Toronto’s parks, plazas, schoolyards, laneways, streets, and other publicly-accessible open spaces.
We want to encourage and support the next generation of creative public space projects. By providing access to funding and professional networks, this second round of our Public Space Incubator will support tangible pilots that test new, innovative ways to bring under-used public spaces to life.
With a focus on innovation, partnerships, programming, and scalability, Public Space Incubator will provide five projects with up to $50,000 in funding per project. And, as an incubator, will support successful applicants in implementing projects by connecting them with a network of professionals. Take a look at the five winning projects from last year for some inspiration.
Public Space Incubator is a program of Park People and is generously funded by Ken and Eti Greenberg and Balsam Foundation.
