Diasporic Genius Founder and Artistic Director, David Buchinder receives the William Kilbourn Award for the Celebration of Toronto’s Cultural Life.
Through its awards portfolio, Toronto Arts Foundation has honoured many of Toronto’s finest artists and arts organizations. The awards are presented as part of the annual Mayor’s Arts Lunch, an elegant event that brings together artists of all disciplines, key business and civic leaders, corporate partners, politicians from all levels of government, as well as special guests and celebrities.
Mayor Tory expressed his deep appreciation for the arts and the role of artists in animating and expressing the soul of the city, reminding us all that a city is more than roads and buildings.
A great honour for David to be recognized for his many achievement as an artist and culture-maker and for Diasporic Genius to be included among his contributions.
