We’ve covered streetcars in ads… why not in art?

A Streetcar Named Toronto is a one-of-a-kind art project and urban exploration whose goal is to honour and celebrate the Canadian Light Rail Vehicle, the iconic streetcars that have defined our urban landscape since 1979. 

In early 2019, we secured the use of a TTC CLRV to be re-made as art and re-launched into service in September. Next, we added experienced Toronto arts curator Rebecca Carbin, who is leading the engagement with the city's arts community. To date, there's been an enormous amount of interest and we anticipate some inspiring proposals by the June 28 deadline.

Alongside the public art streetcar, we are planning a number of other activations around the CLRV, from archival history to rider stories, soundtracks, souvenirs and everything in between. Many more details to be released soon.

A Streetcar Named Toronto is a citizen-funded initiative. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO DO THIS RIGHT! Please consider a gift to our campaign. You will receive a charitable tax receipt from CityFund Foundation and help make the case for future citybuilding projects like this. Together, we can bring the city to life!
