What we're about

An awesome place for fellow Arts and Culture lovers around our city to meet, attend and organize events, share ideas and interests!

Join us as we explore Toronto galleries, museums, fairs, and the best in international films, theatre, opera, food, dance, architecture/design, music and the avant-garde.

We will be active with many of the festivals and fairs that take place throughout the year.

Above all we want to create leading events where people can make new friends while enjoying common interests.

We ask that if you are joining us, you make Toronto Arts & Culture, one of your Top 3 Toronto Meetup groups. Some of our events are quite large, some are intimate. If we can't find you, pls try and find us as best you can. If we are not able to connect up, if you are new to our group..don't give up, try again, as we will do! After 3-5 times coming out, you will have made some new arts & culture friends.

If you need to change/update your RSVP, please do so in a timely and professional manner. When you join, try and get a picture posted and a bit of info about yourself...its helps in identification at events.

Some of our events are ticketed, some have service charges, but the majority are free.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

COVID-19 AUDIENCE OUTLOOK MONITOR – ONTARIO

Online event

Hi All, Our friends at Hill Strategies (in Hamilton), have produced this extremely interesting, relevant, and timely report: Arts attendance and Covid-19: This report summarizes 11,295 survey responses collected in mid-June via the mailing lists of 83 Ontario-based arts organizations that received operating support from the Ontario Arts Council. As is the case for all surveys where people self-select whether to respond, there is uncertainty as to whether the responses provide a representative sample of all attendees at the 83 arts organizations. https://hillstrategies.com/2020/09/09/covid-19-audience-outlook-monitor-ontario/ I know where I am. Where are you? (no need to post any comments, unless you feel strongly about something...but nothing political please) I wish to very much thank Kelly and Alix at Hill Strategies for letting me share this with you. Publisher is Ontario Arts Council Authors are WolfBrown
