Crow’s Community Consultation

Community Consultation Graphic



Crow’s Theatre is opening a new space in Leslieville in 2016 — a cultural hub for East Enders.

Currently celebrating its 30th anniversary year as one of the country’s most acclaimed independent theatres, Crow’s new performing arts facility and community hub will be located at the corner of Dundas Street East and Carlaw Avenue in Leslieville. Crow’s strives to serve as a core cultural destination for East End residents offering a variety of free and ticketed performances, programs and classes for all ages as well as rental spaces for events.

Lend your voice in shaping the new Crow’s by participating in our community consultation process now through June.

If you have any questions about the community consultation, please contact independent consultant Evelyn Tauben at

Collaborating with Crow’s Survey

This survey process is intended to identify existing groups that deliver cultural services and programming in the East End and across the GTA in order to identify areas of strength and need in the area and to identify existing arts organizations and artists that might be interested in using the new facility as a renter and / or partner.
