Awakenings exhibit debuts in Malton Gallery

We’re honoured to partner with the City of Toronto to host an exhibit from the award-winning Awakenings program in the Malton Gallery (located in Terminal 1). This exhibit will open on March 9, 2022 and stay open all year long.

Awakenings, introduced by Toronto History Museums in 2020, features projects involving Director X, Kardinal Offishall, Jully Black, Roger Mooking and more. We are transforming the Malton Gallery into a space that will allow passengers and employees a chance to immerse themselves into this experience.

Awakenings honours the voices of Black, Indigenous, S2LGBTQ+ and artists of colour to share untold and erased truths from our past that have contributed to an inequitable environment. As Canada’s largest airport, Toronto Pearson is a space that represents the diverse beliefs, opinions and perspectives that make Canada a great nation. We believe that if there’s one place that should be a true reflection of diversity, equity and inclusion, it must be Toronto Pearson. Our business, after all, is to connect people and cultures from all over the world.

The Awakenings Program is the recipient of the 2021 Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Community Leadership.
