The Making of Daniels Spectrum

Having a new arts and cultural centre has long been a dream for residents of Toronto’s Downtown East neighbourhood, especially Regent Park.

As proposals for the revitalization of Regent Park began to move forward in the early 2000s, a Community Advisory Committee was created to work with Toronto Community Housing and The Daniels Corporation in the pursuit of making this dream a reality.

Since 2009, using an extensive community consultation process, the vision for Daniels Spectrum has been developed from the ground up.

This cultural hub is the result of more than four years of collaboration with project partners and stakeholders, including Artscape, Toronto Community Housing, The Daniels Corporation and members of the Regent Park community.
