Our Open Hours are Sundays, from 12–6PM. 307 will be closed on Sunday August 5.
Save the date! Join us on Sunday, July 21, for Sidewalk Sunday featuring a projection mapping workshop!
Sidewalk Sundays is a weekly open-house event at 307 Lake Shore East where the public can learn more about our proposal, see models and prototypes, participate in workshops, and ask our staff questions about our vision for the neighbourhood of the future.
Each week we host local community groups and city-builders who are doing work that is shaping the future of Toronto. This week, Sidewalk’s artist-in-residence, Ilze Briede — also known as Kavi — will be hosting a projection mapping workshop! We will learn to use MadMapper software, which allows the user to project designs from a number of video sources to any real-life surface using projectors. The purpose of the workshop is to provide insight into the art of video projection, learn new skills, and bring awareness to the creative power of digital technologies.
A little about Kavi
Kavi is a Toronto based digital media artist and a creative specialising in video projection. Her art practice explores the possibilities and limitations of video projection when a digitally created image enters a physical space. Kavi is interested in video projection as a means to alter and subject our visual perception, resulting in newly defined realities. Besides working as an educator and workshop instructor, Kavi also creates time-based installation pieces, does live VJing for electronic music events and creates video projections for multiple types of occasions. Kavi is a recent graduate from York University with an MFA degree in Visual Arts. She has been an artist-in-residence at Sidewalk Toronto since February 2019.
This is an open house participatory workshop for all ages. Folks should feel free to come, explore, and participate at their leisure. Drop-ins are welcome.

What is 307?
We’ve transformed an old fish processing plant and parking lot into an experimental work space — 307 is where Sidewalk Labs works every day in Toronto and is open to the public every weekend. Inside and outside, we’re exploring some of the ideas that could become part of this future neighbourhood and establishing an open venue for community collaboration. We’re excited to co-create and share our explorations with you as the Sidewalk Toronto project evolves.
Every day, 24/7, our Learning Garden, Building Blocks, and free water kiosk are open to the public. Drop by and relax under an umbrella at a picnic table or in a comfortable Muskoka chair on your way to or from the Portlands or Cherry Beach, and fill up your water bottle when you grab a bike from the Bike Share Toronto station we have right on our site.
