KXN Toronto

#KXNToronto is a partnership between @TorontoClx & the Koffler Centre of the Arts. #KXN was developed to bring together writers & photographers to develop literary photo essays exploring neighbourhoods of Toronto – some familiar, some surprising. This project documents both the changing face of our city, & the inspiring partnerships between artists of different mediums.

See photos from the public launch event.
