At TD, we believe that arts and cultural events that are reflective of all voices are important for building a more inclusive tomorrow.”

The first TD Community Sunday on February 24, 2019, coincides with the new phase of exhibitions featuring the works of Chantal Akerman and Basma Alsharif, running February 14 to April 14, 2019.
