Curatorial Statement

Offering visitors the opportunity to "enjoy cuisines from around the world" from one location, the World Café features culturally specific vendors during partnership festivals as well as a wide range of foods from all cultures throughout the season. It often highlights each festival's curatorial framework through foods that are unique to the regions, cultures and themes being presented.

The World Café also allows Harbourfront Centre to work collaboratively with vendors who are celebrated within their communities, building familiar working relationships with a variety of Toronto’s local groups.

A programme of the complexity and size of this 2014 festival season is only possible with the cooperation, contributions and hard work of every department and all members of the entire Harbourfront Centre staff and volunteer teams. We extend our thanks to them all. We would also like to acknowledge and thank the dedicated Harbourfront Centre Volunteer Team who for 35 years have worked tirelessly to make all our activities possible.
