Collection X. Exploring public collections and community contributions.

Ian Rubenzahl, Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada

When the Collection X web site launches in the early spring of 2007 ( , it will provide an opportunity to bring together public content with public collections held by cultural organizations like the AGO and its partners (the Multicultural History Society of Ontario; City of Toronto, Museums and Heritage Services; Toronto District School Board, Jumblies Theatre and Regent Park Focus). The site utilizes community-building, tagging, RSS and podcasting as an experiment in crossing institutional and cultural boundaries.
