The Brain Project presented by Telus - Until Aug. 31

Continues until August 31
Fort York is proud to participate in this fundraising project for the Baycrest Foundation and to stimulate discussion and awareness of aging and brain health. It will shine a light on age-related dementia, such as Alzheimer's and the need for more research into how we can maintain optimal cognitive well-being at any age. Fort York will host a brain sculpture created by an artist working in the medium of their choice.
