AGO Podcast #3 – A billion dollars of new cultural architecture. Three leaders talk.

December 6th, 2005

Over a billion dollars of new cultural architecture is rising up in Toronto. Radical designs, huge campaigns, great improvements and ceaseless opportunities. What will the arts, the city and the institutions themselves look like after the doors open to a new generation of arts-goers?

Three of Canada’s most visionary arts leaders talk about their projects and their ambitions for tomorrow’s cultural institutions. Featured at the Nov. 24 Ramsay Talks lecture series, the speakers are Matthew Teitelbaum – the Michael and Sonja Koerner Director, and CEO of the Art Gallery of Ontario; William Thorsell – Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Ontario Museum, and Piers Handling – Director and CEO of the Toronto International Film Festival Group. They are introduced by Bob Ramsay.
