====\\DeRAIL is an experiment in a vibrant urban public landscape; an experiment inspired by history, ecology, colour, sound, smell and by everyone who imagines more for the linear park and car-free movement corridor that is the West Toronto Railpath.  Thank you for joining us as observers and performers, for walking with us, making ink and playing with railpath-harvested colours at Jason Logan’s MOBILE INK FACTORY for Doors Open Toronto 2016.

As a new curated platform for contemporary art, architecture, performance and all forms of cultural expression ====\\DeRAIL will provoke, open eyes, turn heads, spark new meaning and celebrate new ways of understanding a familiar place beyond its usual functionality.Thank you for being at the start of a new journey to explore and expand the idea of public landscape, urbanism and placemaking in the outdoor spaces we share. 

====\\DeRAIL listed by The Globe + Mail Architecture writer Alex Bozikovic among the top five places to visit for Doors Open 2016.

Stay tuned for more from ====\\DeRAIL in 2017.
