STEPS Public Art wants you to help shape an artwork that will transform the Bond Street stairwell at Toronto Metropolitan University’s School of Urban & Regional Planning (SURP). We want to know what inspires the SURP community! What inspires you to come to school? Learn about cities? Teach the next generation of city builders? Write your MRP? Or be a practicing urban planner? 

STEPS Public Art has partnered with SURP for a unique opportunity to collaboratively reimagine the stairwell between the second and third floors of 105 Bond Street with an artwork activation (i.e., mural, installation, etc). All members of the SURP community are invited to engage in two fun and interactive arts-based workshops. Participants have the opportunity to learn about placemaking and placekeeping while exploring themes and imagery that will help inform the direction of the stairwell art activation. Insights from conversations with SURP’s diverse community will help create an activation that will serve as a gateway to the SURP’s classrooms and offices!

Join us and register for STEPS’ engagement sessions to get involved and start the conversation:
