Kurt Perschke’s RedBall Project has gone north to Ontario, Canada and the city of Toronto as part of the Luminato - Toronto Festival of the Arts + Creativity - the annual ten-day celebration of the arts where Toronto’s stages, streets, and public spaces are infused with theatre, dance, classical and contemporary music, film, literature, visual arts, and design.
Kurt sent an email alerting me that my efforts to spread the word about his amazing public art project is paying “playful” dividends!

We just stared day one of RedBall Toronto and it turns out the first site was across the street from the Right To Play headquarters! Their board meeting turned into a RedBall day and they were out in full force, I would definitely say they ‘go it’. We also had a visit from a an intrepid group from Invesco Trimark, who said you had introduced them to the project in the last year, they were all over it - literally- and plan on catching some of the other sites.
Just wanted to give you a heads up and many thanks again for spreading the word.
best - kurt
