The Daniels Faculty at the University of Toronto is excited to announce our Fall 2020 Talks & Lectures schedule featuring speakers and themes that simultaneously address the urgency of our contemporary challenges, and the opportunities of our diverse programs—architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, visual studies, and forestry.  

The Fall 2020 Talks, a series of thematic discussions titled Resolutions and Agencies, explore design’s capacity to respond to activism, resilience, decolonization, density, narrative, and justice, among other topics. 

All programs are free, online, and open to the public. All event times are EST. Find more details and register in advance at daniels.utoronto.ca/fall-2020-lectures-talks.
