Toronto’s Rosedale neighborhood and is considered by many as one of the city’s best performance spaces.

Design Canada follows the transformation of a nation from a colonial outpost to a vibrant and multicultural society. What defines a national identity, is it an anthem? A flag? A logo or icon? How do these elements shape who we are? In the 1960s and 1970s, these questions were answered by an innovative group of Canadian designers who used design to unify the nation.
