Launch for The Ward Uncovered

The Arts & Letters Club, 14 Elm St, Toronto, ON M5G 1G7 Jun 27 07:00 pm - Jun 27 10:00 pm

In early 2015, a team of archaeologists began digging test trenches on a nondescript parking lot next to Toronto City Hall, a site designated to become a major new court house. What they discovered was the rich buried history – nearly half a million artifacts, in fact – of an enclave that was part of The Ward, a dense, poor, but vibrant 'arrival city' that was home to waves of immigrants and refugees, Irish, African-Americans, Italians, eastern European Jews, and Chinese between 1840 and 1950. The Ward Uncovered digs up the tales of things, using these well-preserved artifacts to tell a different set of stories about life in this long-forgotten and much-maligned neighbourhood.
We will be launching The Ward Uncovered with dramatic readings, music, and artifacts on display. Free and all are welcome.
