Arts Etobicoke and the Etobicoke Historical Society present Etobicoke Stories of Significance, a collaboration with local artists to curate an interactive exhibit of culturally and historically significant areas across Etobicoke. In 2021 Arts Etobicoke launched Sites of Significance as part of Toronto’s Year of Public Art. Etobicoke Stories of Significance builds on Sites of Significance to gather stories from the community with a focus on the intersection of what makes Etobicoke the place it is today, and the changing community of people who call this place home. This project combines in-person and digital experiences in Arts Etobicoke’s Storefront Gallery to create a compelling cultural experience for our community.



Etobicoke Stories of Significance is presented in partnership with Myseum of Toronto as part of Myseum Intersections 2022. This project is led by Arts Etobicoke with contributions from Philip Cote, Susan Blight, Nyle Johnston, Khadija Aziz, Khaula Mazhar, Nicholas Sanchez, Etobicoke Historical Society, Village of Islington BIA, and AIRSA.

Myseum Intersections 2022 is funded by the Government of Canada.

Myseum of Toronto is made possible with the generous support of Diane Blake and Stephen Smith.
