Dave Meslin

Founder, Toronto Public Space Committee

About Me: Multi-partisan and fiercely optimistic, Dave Meslin embraces ideas and projects that cut across traditional boundaries between grassroots politics, electoral politics and the arts community.

Meslin, Toronto-based, co-founded Spacing Magazine and then created the WhoRunsThisTown project in 2006. Later, he founded Cycle Toronto in addition to starting another magazine -- Dandyhorse Magazine. Recent projects include curating the Fourth Wall exhibit, which reflects on issues of local politics in Toronto. Meslin is currently a community organizer, promoting his thoughts on political change, cycling reform, and public space issues through his blog.

His new book, TEARDOWN, is being published by Penguin in 2019.

As an active member of the political community in Toronto, Dave Meslin sparks passionate dialogue about changing social norms and becoming more action-focused as members of a thriving city.
