Info/pics/comments here: https://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Arts-and-Culture/events/246585617/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For this November trip: 3 days...10-12 people As with all my trips, you are responsible for your own travel and accommodations. I provide 2 1/2 days of programming Thurs night, all day Friday and Saturday. Most return home on Sunday morning.. For travel: Bus is about $100, Train is about $200, Air is about $300, or drive or carpool On this trip, we will focus our attention on Mundial Montreal (world music festival/showcase), also SIX art gallery visits meeting with gallery owners and artists, and of course our traditional group dinner on last night!! 1) Mundial Montreal (world music festival) Nov 13-16th https://mundialmontreal.com/en/ http://afropop.org/articles/mundial-montreal-2017-field-report We will see some great concerts (most of I believe about 30 min in length..so suspect we could see FOUR in one night. One of my friends is the Artistic Director/co-founder, he will provide some good insight for us. Tickets for Mundial are an additional cost etc ($25 max). Mundial is known for showcasing artists which will end up playing in Toronto in a few years...so come and see them before everyone else. We are very lucky this year to get into a showcase concert, which is NOT open to the public!! 2) We will spend some time at MAC (Museum of Contemporary Art) https://macm.org/en/exhibitions/francoise-sullivan/ Tour/entry cost $15-20 approx As well, we will visit, 6 additional Montreal galleries, all with exceptional Fall shows. 3) We always end these trips with a group dinner. I have a place in mind, and is kept a surprise until final schedule is confirmed in late October. Cost is usually in the $75-100 range. FYI: - there is no "wrong" place to stay. On previous trips, Airbnb and Hotels seem to be the norm. It is all based on your personal budget. Mundial Festival has a promo rate of about $100 at an area Hotel (fyi) - aim to be in Montreal by 3pm on Thursday November 15th - Montreal is very easy to get around in...excellent Metro system - There is NON-REFUNDABLE fee to attend my trips, and is due within 48hrs of your RSVP $100 if you coming with me for the first time. $75 if you have travelled with me before. This is sent to me via email interac or paypal to this email address..

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!
