in/future – A Festival of Art & Music at Ontario Place

presented by Art Spin in partnership with Small World Music

Celebrating its 15th Anniversary, the Small World Music Festival is proud to partner with Art Spin to present in/future, a unique 11-day multidisciplinary arts event that will take place from September 15 – 25 at Ontario Place.

Audiences will be immersed in a transformative art experience that will open the gates of Ontario Place’s West Island, a scenic 14-acre waterfront venue, to the public for the first time since the iconic amusement park closed in 2012. A dynamic and diverse exhibition and music festival, in/future will serve as an important early step in Ontario Place’s ongoing revitalization plans, ensuring that art and culture remain at the forefront of its long term vision.
