Event description

Description

On Saturday, June 2nd, 2018, 100In1Day is returning to Toronto, and we invite you to participate in this festival of civic engagement!

Imagine the possibilities for our city if hundreds of people united to participate in small initiatives to spark change. People of all ages, backgrounds and locations across the city are invited to attend workshops to develop their 100In1Day interventions – from idea to execution.

Interested in hosting an intervention with a focus on housing? Or maybe you just want to learn more about 100In1Day and the types of initiatives individuals are spearheading involving housing. We're bringing in facilitators and housing experts from Evergreen and Building Roots to show you how!

This FREE workshop is meant to inspire generative, creative and reflective interventions with an emphasis on housing. It is also for you to share your ideas for making your neighbourhood or community space more livable. Learn more, meet people and develop your urban intervention at this free workshop.
