On Saturday, Oct. 24, the Covered Street Barn at Artscape Wychwood Barns was transformed into a Halloween festival welcoming over 1000 ghouls and goblins, princesses and superheroes all ages. BOO! at the Barns, presented by WBCA and Artscape, is an annual, multi-vendor event and a neighbourhood favourite.

Thank you to the Event Sponsors, Arlington Dental & Vaughan Road Dental and The Josie Stern Team as well as In-Kind Sponsors Above Ground Art Supplies, Barefoot Wine, Steam Whistle Brewing and Pizza Del Arte for helping to make the magic happen.

Urban Land Institute Awards 2014 | Melanie Schwam Photography

On May 21, 2014, our friends at the Urban Land Institute (ULI) hosted their Developing Mixed Income & Multi-Use Communities event to discuss the urban makeovers of Regent Park, Alexandra Park, and Lawrence Heights. The evening started out with a reception and networking event in the Artscape Lounge and then moved into Ada Slaight Hall for a panel discussion and Q&A with local developers and Toronto Community Housing. Afterward, ULI members were treated to an exclusive tour of Daniels Spectrum, the Regent Park Aquatic Centre and the new 6-acre park on Dundas Street.

From Alexandra Rybak, District Council Coordinator, ULI Toronto:

It was wonderful to work with you on the ULI program at Daniels Spectrum. Thank you of your help in making this event a huge success.
