It’s been two years since the opening of The Bentway Skate Trail and we’ve welcomed over 110,000 skaters—and counting—to “Skate the 8” and take part in this unique urban experience. But we couldn’t have done it without our incredible team.
The hum of the Gardiner above, the rush of passing trains, and the occasional cannon blasts from Fort York make The Bentway site rich acoustic territory. Our 2019 Artist Residency featured Mitchell Akiyama and Brady Peters exploring The Bentway as an instrument. Co-presented with New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA).
Helping to bring our Bentway-sized ideas (and Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon) to life is our Production Manager, Billy Wolf.
Toronto Green Community connects us back to our waterways and nature through hands-on workshops and walks. Presented as part of The Bentway’s Community Incubation Program.
In September 14, as part of our presentation of Museum of the Moon by Luke Jerram, Laurie Brown and team recorded a special episode of their Pondercast podcast entitled Moon Merge.
From September 10-15, The Bentway brought the Moon under the Gardiner with a presentation of Museum of the Moon. In addition to this installation visitors were encouraged to listen to a multi-channel soundtrack that explored lunar stories from near and far.
