Picturing the Ward Art exhibit & connection to recent Social Studies Inquiry

Over the past week, information about the exhibition Picturing the Ward came out.  The project that was completed in Social Studies took a look at how a particular community moved from one place to another.  In this case, a number of new Canadians settled in St. John's Ward, which was bound by College St., Queen St., Yonge St., and University Avenue and is an example of how Toronto has had a rich history of Cultural and Ethnic diversity.
