Honourees


Robert and Julia Foster

CreativeTO will celebrate long term former Chairman, Robert Foster, who was instrumental in helping Artscape ‘reach for the stars,’ as he does now so well as Chair of both TO Live and Business for the Arts. We could not celebrate leadership and community achievement without jointly saluting Robert’s wife, Julia Foster C.M., who has also chaired many of our largest and most vital arts organizations.
