The Bentway Conservancy

Toronto, ON

The Bentway works to ignite the urban imagination, using the city as site, subject, and canvas. Anchored under Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway and guiding its complex future, The Bentway is a growing public space and much more. The Bentway is a new type of civic organization: a not-for-profit, powered by vital partnerships with the City of Toronto, residents, supporters, artists, city-builders, and dreamers. The Bentway is a catalyst rooted in experimentation, leading a creative movement to re-imagine the opportunities of urban spaces. Phase 1 of The Bentway opened in 2018 and is already a vital public space, park, cultural platform, connector for the western Waterfront corridor, and a vibrant demonstration of what is possible.

Bow Bridge was engaged by The Bentway in 2021-2023 to raise awareness of the organization nationally and internationally and advise as communications counsel.
