Description

Description:

The history of Toronto’s construction is rich with stories of bravery and foolishness, selfishness and greed, triumph and tragedy, personified by a cast of charismatic individuals whose tremendous contributions to this city have been largely forgotten. The City Builders multimedia exhibition tells the fascinating history of the immigrant construction workers who built Toronto and their labour struggles in the 1950s-70s, by way of displays, artifacts, videos, and augmented-reality digital features.
