Collectively Speaking: Take Shelter

July 16, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Event Navigation

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?

The Gladstone invites you to take part in this event, not only as a spectator, but also to cast your vote during this alternative town hall meeting, hosted by Kaleb Robertson.

Participating collectives:

The Project Gallery

The Hashtag Gallery

185 Augusta

Organized by Max Lupo, Hannah Pertsovsky, and Samantha Robbie-Higgins.
