Toronto’s Bloor Street has boomed into a cultural hub full of galleries, museums, and other organizations that promote the arts. Thirteen partners have joined forces across a 1.6 km strip (between Bathurst and Bay Streets) to create the Bloor St. Culture Corridor. Offering opportunities to experience some of Toronto’s cultural diversity, including French, Jewish, Italian, Japanese and Aboriginal arts and culture, Torontonians and visitors to the City can enjoy can experience art exhibitions to music concerts all year round.
When it was announced by spokesperson, Heather Kelly (also Director of the Royal Conservatory of Music), in the Spring, I was thrilled to find out that this concept finally became official – an approval that was twelve years in the making!
Now, things are moving forward with the launch of the mobile app whic will “provide access to special offers exclusive to app users, and a convenient way to easily see the richness of cultural destinations and events in the Bloor Street area of central Toronto, from The Annex through to Yorkville. The app’s social feed connects users with the latest news and announcements from the Twitter feeds of all of the arts and culture destinations on the Bloor St. Culture Corridor. Users can also browse through options for shopping, eating, and hotels on the corridor”.
For all you cultural enthusiasts, I highly recommend to download this app and start checking out these amazing venues and establishments today!
