Introducing: Open Minds Toronto
Open Minds Toronto
is a new group in the area, which is dedicated to “opening up spaces for community members to meet, play and learn together.”
While they build toward their longer-term goal of opening a learning hub on the Danforth, they have partnered with some local businesses to ‘animate’ our community. They have two exciting events in the coming weeks, and don’t forget to RSVP in order to reserve your seat.
‘Itch and Stitch
Friday, November 16, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Patisserie La Cigogne (Danforth and Monarch Park)
Cost: Pay What You Can
Bring your mending, sketching, knitting, embroidery, whatever…and join in for conversation on topical issues, while sipping and nibbling on the fine offerings of Patisserie La Cigogne, at the corner of Danforth and Monarch Park. Joanne at La Cigogne has agreed to stay open an hour later than usual to accommodate the group. Click here to reserve a seat.
Making a Racket at the Rocket
Thursday, November 22, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
@ Red Rocket (1364 Danforth)
Cost: Pay What You Can
This will be a Spoken Word evening of readings, poetry and storytelling. Poets, authors, storytellers and songwriters are welcome to register to present. There will be a featured author: Terri Favro, author of The Proxy Bride (and local Danforth resident). Everyone is welcome to come out to the Red Rocket, 1364 Danforth (between Greenwood and Coxwell) as audience as well. The Red Rocket is licensed to serve alcohol, and also has a nice selection of coffees and teas and nibbles. If you’re coming (either to present or to listen) definitely email them by clicking here so they can reserve a seat for you – they expect this to be popular!
All proceeds are to help develop the potential of Open Minds. If you want to know more, have ideas, or want to get involved, or want to keep updated about more events, visit their website: http://www.openmindstoronto.ca.
