Call for Community Feedback
The City of Toronto, StreetARToronto invites you to share feedback on the Design Concepts for the Lansdowne Underpass Art Project.

To share your feedback, please visit

About this Project
The Lansdowne Underpass Art Project, will transform the east side of the Lansdowne Underpass, south of Dundas Street West with a collection of murals that share first person perspective stories that speak to the rich ongoing history of the site as home to many diverse plant and animal species and cultural communities, beginning with the Indigenous peoples of Tkaronto and Turtle Island. The Lansdowne Underpass Art Project aims to create a collaborative artwork that honours this site by telling stories of those who have and continue to live on, play on, build community on, struggle on, learn from, grow in, paint, immigrate to, contribute to, and tend to this land.

The Lansdowne Underpass Art Project aspires to include works that represent the diverse cultures, languages and heritage of street, mural and graffiti artists from the communities that have settled in what is now Ward 4 and Ward 9 over the centuries. The project aims to create an artwork that shares knowledge across communities and celebrates people coming together through compassion, cooperation, a shared sense of belonging and pride of place.
