People rushing to catch buses, the subway at Main Station or to hop aboard a train at the Danforth GO station will be encouraged to stop awhile and interact with art for the nine days prior to Labour Day.  The public square on the southeast corner of Danforth and Main St. will be transformed into an ongoing arts and community festival as Main Squared comes to the East York area.

Produced by the East End Arts non-profit group in association with Labspace Studio, the idea is to get people “to reimagine the square as a space for social engagement, discourse and civic activism,” the project’s website says.
