The Daniels Faculty at the University of Toronto announces its Fall 2022 public program

September 15–November 29, 2022

Presenting their Fall 2022 public program is the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto. Its goal is to promote meaningful conversation on the significant social, political, and environmental concerns facing our world today through a series of book presentations, panel discussions, lectures, and symposia. One of the issues highlighted was how we may produce new knowledge and use it to foster critical thought and, ultimately, social transformation.

Its programs tackle a variety of issues that are crucial to what we do, such as design and social justice, art and new media, urban development and housing, and ecology and landscape resilience. These programs are driven by challenging concerns.

Every event is free and available to everyone. Here, register in advance and refer to the calendar for the most recent information.
