For the Love of Toronto

Talking About Our City

Visitors spent the evening enjoying a series of uplifting, funny, and essential talks about the city we call home.

This unique set of presenters brought the stage to life with stories of city life and love.

We heard insights, lessons, and stories from creative voices that shape this city as we explored everything from housing to the arts, from dumplings to nature.

How do we manage our health and wellness? How can we be optimistic about housing? And do we think Jamaican Patties are the best food to represent Toronto?

Museum of Toronto brought together architects, chefs, writers, comedians, filmmakers and more to speak to the themes Torontonians define as essential to their city life and love.
