AGO Live: Hello From The Other Side

2020 has been a rollercoaster year. Everything we took for granted as stable — the, economy, human touch, the arts — has proven anything but. When the pandemic shut down most of the world in mid-March, and a social revolution began to take place on the streets, we all had to revisit our values and the tenants of our lives. Now, with the AGO's reopening well underway, we want to welcome back our community - with a mix of excitement but also a need to make space for healing and the truths we learned — by rebuilding foundations with generosity, accessibility and democracy. Performance is both the aspect of this return that feels most challenging, as it has to do with people gathering, but is also the most necessary.

This Fall and Winter, each Friday between 2 and 4 pm, we welcome partners from across the city to use the Gallery as a site for their programs.

Join us as we invite The Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Small World MusicRISE Edutainment, The Canadian Opera Company, and The National Ballet of Canada, partners old and new, that have either lost their seasons or venues, to use our space for month-long takeovers. It will be a remarkable experience of bringing the arts closer together and ensuring we are all participating in the same task: to revitalize the arts in our city.

Before visiting the gallery, you will need to book a timed-entry ticket online. All performances are free with admission, and will follow physical-distancing guidelines.
