Virtual Town Hall and Panel Discussion

On Thursday, May 12 from 6:30-8:00 p.m., Monumental Projects and the City of Toronto will be hosting a virtual panel discussion with community leaders to explore the draft guiding principles for commemoration. The discussion will be hosted on Zoom by Zahra Ebrahim & Kofi Hope, Co-Founders of Monumental Projects, and will consider the history of commemoration in Toronto and current efforts to address legacy issues. They will also explore the untold stories of people, places and events that the panelists would like to see commemorated in Toronto.
