In a surprising development, City staff have refused to support TMAC’s efforts to relieve its space crisis while we wait for Edge on Triangle Park to finalize its portion of the resolution we’ve been working towards.
Our proposal to enter into an interim license agreement would not impair the legal position of the City. Inexplicably, City staff rejected it. We have four arts organizations that need space, and a space – sitting empty for almost 3 years now – that needs arts organizations.
We want to continue on a cooperative path and believe an agreement satisfactory to all sides is possible – but TMAC has nowhere to go on January 1. We’ll be taking further steps to protect the future of media arts in Toronto.
