Together, Monument Lab and The Bentway posed an open research question: What is your theory of Toronto? The invited speakers were asked to respond to this question as it is broken down into four categories: the constitution of Publics, the historical transmission of Legacies, the recognition of Ecologies, and the striving for Belonging.
Each of the speakers were videotaped. Below you will find the videos.
