Special thanks to the folks at the Toronto Public Space Committee, and their eight-month fight against video ads in our subway cars. Yesterday, TTC commissioners voted 4-3 against allowing Viacom Outdoor to proceed with what would have been a new level of intrusiveness to our journeys around the city.
Artists! The Toronto Public Space Committee currently has a call for
submissions for The Better Way: Redesigning the TTC: Replacing Ads With Your Imagination art show at Xpace Gallery coming up this winter. Deadline for submissions: October 31, 2005.
