Due to the TDSB closure between March 14 and April 5, a number
of Arts events have been cancelled (up to June 2020). In some cases, it is because
the event falls within the closure dates and in other cases it is because there
are associated costs and/or planning and preparation activities required that
are no longer possible to complete. Please see a full event list below. Thank
