Abstract

Rave culture and club culture in Toronto are used in this investigation as a case study for the examination of the transformation of contested space and its implications brought about through internal and external agents of change that are based on differing discourses and practices.Drawing on textual research in the disciplines of sociology, philosophy, and geography concerning various spatial dimensions and field research conducted through personal telephone interviews and documentary work carried out in City Hall, the transformation is seen as the result of media reports, commercialism and co-optation, legislation, and inner fragmentation.
