Collectively Speaking: Take Shelter
July 16, 2013. 7:00pm – 10:00pm
The Gladstone Hotel | Melody Bar
1214 Queen Street West
Toronto, like every major city, is home to a number of seemingly unsolvable problems. But as creative individuals we think, given the chance, we could be a leading force for positive change.
Collectively Speaking brings together three of Toronto’s most interesting art, and design collectives to engage in a friendly competition to offer innovative solutions to one of Toronto’s most elusive problems: housing.
The cost of living is very high, and on an average income it is difficult to afford reasonable housing in the city. This is a problem that is not unique to Toronto, and is very much the reality in a number of Canada’s major metropolitan centres.
What can be done to ease the burden of living in a major metropolitan area?
Come to this event to take part, not only as a spectator, but also to cast your vote during this alternative town hall meeting, hosted by Kaleb Robertson. The winning collective will have the opportunity to implement their solution on the Gladstone Hotel’s Lower Green Roof.
Discussion & ideas & questions & answers & art & friends & strangers & community & snacks & drinks.
Come on over for another evening of showing, telling and critiquing. All are welcome, bring your pals/lovers/neighbours.
