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!

Waterfront Tour (with Toronto Society of Architects)

Simcoe WaveDeck

This will be our 3rd summer Architecture Walk with TSA. We have a small promo code for $2 off, so price is $13 per person. Details below. You will need to purchase your ticket when you sign up please. Once a busy commercial harbour dominated by warehouses, factories, and seafaring merchants, Toronto’s waterfront is quickly re-establishing itself as a place for people to live, work, and play. From urban beaches to artist studios, high-tech offices to whimsical public spaces, our shoreline has been dramatically redefined by new buildings and landscapes that seek to reconnect the city to the lake and redefine our relationship to Lake Ontario. Come join us on a walk along the water’s edge as we explore this exciting revitalization through its architecture and landscapes. Along the way we’ll explore the challenges, successes, and lessons we’ve learned for the future of waterfront redevelopment and see how traces of our industrial past are finding new uses for art, culture, and leisure. We’ll also discuss some of the exciting projects that will continue to redefine our shoreline for years to come by peeking into the future of our city through some of the proposals taking shape along our route.
