Spacing is finally going national! And what better place than the Design Exchange — the exhibition hall that showcases the best in Canadian design — to host the launch of the magazine’s first national issue. Come out and celebrate with the editors and contributors. There will be drinks and activities to be had, plus you’ll get a chance to see the amazing photo exhibit by Guy Tillim on the rise and fall of Modernism in post-colonial African cities.
While the look and feel of the magazine is no different than the local Toronto edition, the content has expanded to look at the joys, obstacles, and politics affecting all of Canada’s large urban centres. Articles touch on topics like street performing in Victoria, Calgary’s plans to build its arts community, how Ottawa’s marathon is becoming more urban, and how the seasonal pedestrian mall on rue Ste.-Catherines has been a boon for local businesses.
While this event is the official launch of the national issue, Spacing will be hosting a series of events in 10 cities across the country — called the Spacing Road Show — in June and July. Keep an eye on our blogs, Facebook page and Twitter account to learn more about these parties.
