Art of the Danforth 2012 was a 21 day contemporary public art festival spanning three blocks of the city in the East Danforth neighbourhood. As curators of Zone C: Chemical Equations - running from West Lynn Ave to Cedarvale Ave - EQUΔLΔTERΔL commissioned 7 interdisciplinary projects by Nick Sweetman, Riccardo Pecora, Department of Unusual Certainties, Carly Shields, WJ Wilson, Emily DiCarlo and Jacqui Arntfield. 

Chemical Equations examines the structure of basic reactions in order to activate a series of projects that represent the transformation of one state or condition to another. Serving as a testing ground, Zone C presents site-specific hypotheses in the economic, the cultural, the spatial and the self, with the intention of analyzing preexisting potentials and initiating a reevaluation of the unnoticed characteristics of the neighbourhood.
