Panel Discussion - Diversity: Our Strength?
At the panel discussion for the launch of Coach House Books' The State of the Arts: Living with Culture in Toronto (uTOpia vol. II), moderator Misha Glouberman made a provocative suggestion regarding Toronto's cultural identity. He suggested that the two things that people are most excited about when they talk about Toronto - our multiculturalism and our vibrant arts scene -- rarely cross over, at least in public perception. Indeed, the independent arts community of which Wavelength is a part, is primarily composed of white downtowners. There are other arts and cultural scenes in the city we're barely aware of. Why are we "indie kids" unwilling or unable to engage in a dialogue with the rest of the city?

Rather than debate this question or point fingers, at this panel we seek proactive solutions, and posit that an inter cultural exchange between communities may not only strengthen Toronto's social fabric, but may also result in some exciting and uniquely Torontonian art. How can we work to make this happen?

The Panelists:
David Dacks (CIUT, Exclaim)
Jonny Dovercourt (Wavelength, Music Gallery)
Rosina Kazi (LAL)
More Or Les (hip-hop MC)
Sara Saljoughi (Fig Records)
with moderator Misha Glouberman (Trampoline Hall)
