It was an amazing honour to be the production sponsor for the launch of Morphology at the Small Arms Inspection Building.
Morphology was the inspiration of former Mississauga Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey and was first launched on January 14, 2018, the day before the Councillor’s untimely passing. Morphology was born from a vision championed by Tovey and community members during early construction of the conservation area. The new conservation area lies adjacent to Mississauga’s Lakeview Village development, Canada’s next generation waterfront community that will connect business, education, culture, residences and recreation along the waterfront.
When completed, the shared community dream of restoring public access to the entire Lakeview area will be fulfilled after more than a century of military and industrial use. As Councillor Tovey often repeated, “It’s time to bring the lake to Lakeview.”
The Small Arms Inspection Building (SAIB) is a historic, multi-purpose building that presents a wide range of arts and cultural programs. As the only cultural hub of its kind in Mississauga, the SAIB supports meaningful audience engagement through dynamic exhibitions, events and experiences. This unique venue provides much needed cultural space that will be used to present open and responsive programming that fosters collaboration and community-building on a local, regional, national, and international level.
