Suburbs should be incubators of creativity: innovative and complicated, but all too frequently underappreciated. In Creative Margins, Alison L. Bain files the original position of Canadian artists and cultural staff in suburban place-formation and dismantles mischaracterizations of suburbs as cultural wastelands.

Creative Margins interweaves tales of the demanding situations and possibilities awarded through the production of tradition in suburbs, targeting Etobicoke and Mississauga open air Toronto, and Surrey and North Vancouver outdoor Vancouver. The booklet investigates even if the inventive method unfolds otherwise for suburban and concrete cultural staff, in addition to how this approach is suffering from the presence or absence of cultural infrastructure and making plans initiatives.

Bain exhibits how suburban tradition can increase a city-region’s energy and sustainability. This publication firmly debunks the parable of tradition as a exclusively city phenomenon and demonstrates the social and monetary benefits of making an investment in suburban artwork and culture.
