Toronto, ON - Bringing the City Alive, a Leger survey done on behalf of Toronto Arts Foundation has found that a majority (70%) of GTA residents regularly participate in the arts by attending events, volunteering, or donating.

One in four GTA residents are actively creative, as members of amateur arts groups, students in art classes, participants in community arts projects or professional artists.

The production will be presented in March 2011 at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.
