The Waterfront's Artist in Residency

Black Speculative Arts Movement Canada (BSAM Canada) was selected for the first-ever Waterfront Artist Residency Program. The 16-month residency was created and made possible through a partnership between Waterfront Toronto and The Waterfront BIA, with the aim to create meaningful, experiential encounters with the community, activate under-utilized spaces along the lakefront and draw new audiences to the waterfront.
