Listen to Connor Curran, Local Laundry's chief laundry folder, Phil Cimolai, general manager of the Taylor Centre for the Performing Arts, and Brad Mahon, dean of the faculty of Continuing Education and Conservatory talk about the process to create the Centre the Arts campaign, why a local collaboration was important and why it is so meaningful to both groups.

Cimolai and Mahon also share their passion for the arts, the purpose of the Taylor Centre and the history behind the Bella Concert Hall. Later in the episode, they discuss the significance of the sweater and toque design, what it means to Centre the Arts as an organization, as well the impact the Taylor Centre hopes to have by offering Centre the Arts apparel.
