BLOCKS T.O. Closing Reception

June 16, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

cost of tickets includes closing reception

On Sunday June 16 2013, please join Keep Six Exhibits as we host the second annual BLOCKS T.O., an exciting urban adventure in Toronto. Adventure around Toronto then enjoy a closing reception in the Art Bar!

BLOCKS T.O. engages teams of young and old in a car-free urban scavenger hunt, exploring how Toronto’s architecture has framed the city’s constantly evolving communities. BLOCKS T.O. is a one-day adventure that will enhance understanding between generations by exploring architecture, design and urban navigation.

Using archival photos from the early 1900’s, player-pairs will have four hours to identify long-standing buildings and locations in the here-and-now. Teams will visit locations throughout the city on foot, by public transit or by bike to collect points by finding and photographing the building or location, and getting as close as possible to the footprint of the original photographer.

BLOCKS T.O. teams will explore and re-imagine the city’s architecture and design, documenting how buildings from the past continue to shape communities, block by block. This is an opportunity to celebrate buildings and neighbourhoods; city blocks that hold countless stories of people and cultures that have lived, grown and continue in these shared spaces. BLOCKS T.O. is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to experience this great city on a whole new level and we hope you will join us!

Cost: $50 per team, includes full day of fun + closing reception

To purchase tickets or for more information about Keep Six Exhibits and BLOCKS T.O. please visit our website or contact Rafi Ghanaghounian, Executive Director, Keep Six Exhibits.
