As we reimagine public spaces amid COVID-19 how do we make them more inclusive? Toronto’s Bentway asked artists and activists

Cities around the world have reimagined public space throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to help residents get moments of exercise, fresh air and some sort of distanced social interaction. In Toronto, entire roads were closed to make way for cyclists and joggers as part of ActiveTO. Its sister program, CafeTO also closed roads so that restaurants could extend outdoor patios in lieu of indoor dining. Circles were painted on the grounds of Trinity Bellwoods park so that people could still gather while physical distancing.

Have you seen the full moon under the Gardiner? Get ready to sing to it with Choir! Choir! Choir!

U.K. artist Luke Jerram’s The Museum of the Moon will arrive at the Bentway, the 1.75-kilometre public space and outdoor gallery located underneath the Gardiner Expressway. The Museum of the Moon is a giant balloon, seven metres in diameter, built to 1:500,000 scale using NASA imagery, illuminated from the inside to provide an up-close view of the Moon’s rocky craters, dead volcanic cones and lava flows.
