Kids and the City

Let’s face it. When most people think about city living, the term “kid-friendly” doesn’t always come to mind. But more and more, families are making the move to live closer to the action, where they can eat, shop, work and play – all within walking, biking and C-Train distance. Leading the charge is an adorable family of four who calls the Evolution condo “home”, proving that you don’t need a house in the suburbs to raise kids. Joel, Genevieve, Oliver and Murphy are living their best urban life, right in the center of all the arts, culture, events and vibrancy. Don’t take our word for it, though! Let Genevieve and Joel tell you why they love living in East Village with their littles.

Behind the Masks: Katie Green’s ‘Bridge’ Installation

In East Village’s newest iteration of our Art in the Public Realm program, community residents, workers, and visitors are the stars, featured front and center in the artwork. They’re people you might see as you’re walking through the neighbourhood, picking up a book from the library or grabbing weekend brunch at Chix Eggshop. But even though you might know them, you likely won’t recognize them. In this installation by local artist Katie Green, East Villagers explored empowerment through anonymity as they posed in various spaces around East Village, wearing masks they made in collaboration with the artist.
