CANADA’S PLACE FOR MUSIC & COMMUNITY HUB -The local planning group of the International Resource Centre for Performing Artists (IRCPA, a service organization for Canada’s musicians), including residents and businesses in Toronto’s Corktown neighbourhood and professional advisors, announces a conceptualized logo for the musicians’ centre they envision in the historic Dominion Foundry buildings.
Designed by John Harris, President of the Harris Institute, the logo reflects the working group’s vision to regenerate the Machine Shop and Warehouse on the site at 153-185 Eastern Avenue as a vibrant centre for musicians and the diverse communities of the Corktown neighbourhoods.
John Harris describes his logo as representing “a melting pot for music, with the cartoonish keyboard reflecting childlike beginnings. The melting keyboard symbolizes movement as the name fills up, indicating progress and completion. Musical accomplishment is signified by the gold in the keyboard. The generic gloved hand suggests gender equity, while the industrial component characterizes business.”
The IRCPA and planning group invite the public to comment on the logo and the concept of The Foundry as a place for musicians to meet, work and perform, as well as being a community hub. Comments may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, tweeted to @IRCPA, or posted in the Comments section via the link at https://ircpa.net/the-foundry. A design proposal for these facilities and the overall Foundry Site, from a team of residents, businesses and professional advisors, is available on the same page.
