The Music Gallery

The Music Gallery 2021-2022 season culminates with a powerful season finale from the Departures series, featuring Swiss minimalist post punk big band Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp, and Montreal oud outsider Sam Shalabi! OTPMD seamlessly sews influences from free jazz, minimalist krautrock, post punk within the big band format. From gracefully heart felt minimalist ballads to ripping avant rock jammers the band flexes its muscles without ever tearing the shirt. Kicking the night off revered oud player, composer, avant trouble-causer Sam Shalabi merges traditional Arabic tendencies with free jazz into a concoction that is both beautiful and biting. Please visit here for more information.

Alliance Française de Toronto

The Alliance Française Award exhibition presents two exceptional projects selected from work made by fourth-year students in the Creative School’s BFA Photography program, at Toronto Metropolitan University. Shown in relation to one another, Anne-Marie Cloutier’s Teen Spirit and John Delante’s Finding Comfort Under the Sky each address the transitional period of adolescence, from differing but complementary perspectives. One centres the point of view of a mother looking in, using portraiture and still-life photography as means of understanding and relating to her rapidly growing daughters. The other offers the unique, also intimate, perspective of a recently landed immigrant youth, coming of age in an unfamiliar place, looking out at his mother and his new surroundings, and using photography as a way to reconcile his past and present identities. All event information can be found at their website.

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Hot Docs Cinema's July lineup will feature theatrical releases of acclaimed Hot Docs Festival 2022 titles The Talented Mr. Rosenberg, a look into the mind, motive and method of "the Yorkville Swindler"; and My Old School, the jaw-dropping story of a teen boy enrolled in a posh Glasgow high school whose unbelievable secret became front-page news. Fresh off the Platinum Jubilee celebration is Elizabeth, A Portrait in Part(s), a new doc that captures Queen Elizabeth at her most relaxed, even mischievous at times. Delight in wonders of Come Back Anytime, a portrait of Japanese ramen master Masamoto Ueda; and learn about the lore of a nearly mythical Manhattan hotel in Dreaming Walls: Inside the Chelsea Hotel. These films will be complemented by new Watch List collections of audience faves and little-seen gems. Back by popular demand is an all-new edition of Cat Video Fest. Later in the month join an in-depth chat with bestselling author Tom Perrotta (Election), and a special screening and Q&A with Navalny director Daniel Roher. Visit the Hot Docs website to view their health and safety guidelines and programming schedule.

Gardiner Museum

The Gardiner Museum is fired up for summer and this month is all about getting hands-on with clay! From July 6 to September 4, the Gardiner will hold family clay activities on the outdoor plaza every Wednesday to Saturday followed by Family Day on Sunday—all free with admission. Inspired by the Museum’s collaboration with Z’otz* Collective, visitors are invited to take part in a playful and collaborative activity where they’ll mould a human or animal body part out of clay and attach it to another participant’s sculpture to form an imaginative hybrid creature. From summer camp to drop-in classes to clay mindfulness workshops, there’s something for everyone! Visit their website to see what's on.

The Bloor St. Culture Corridor, Toronto's most diverse arts and culture district, is a true creative cluster, an arts and culture destination, and a collaboration between some of Toronto's most dynamic arts and culture organizations.

The Bloor St. Culture Corridor offers the public a wide variety of arts genres, from museum experiences to films, art exhibitions to music concerts, and opportunities to experience some of Toronto's cultural diversity, including Aboriginal, French, Jewish, Italian, Japanese, Estonian, African and Caribbean arts and culture.
All Bloor St. Culture Corridor organizations present arts and cultural events for the public year-round in destination venues located in a cluster along a vibrant stretch of Bloor Street West. Each year more than three million members of the public go to Bloor St. Culture Corridor arts and culture destinations, and attend exhibitions, performances, and events. Together, the Bloor St. Culture Corridor organizations employ more than 5,500 culture workers and generate more than $629,500,000 in economic impact each year. In 2016, The Bloor St. Culture Corridor was successful in working with the City of Toronto to have the Bloor St. Culture corridor section of Bloor St. West designated an official City of Toronto cultural corridor.
