From art studios to public spaces in the city, celebrate design in the 6ix this month at the the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO).
Canada’s largest cultural celebration of design returns for its 7th year with over 100 exhibitions and events forming Toronto’s design week. Festivities begin on January 16 and run until the 22.
TO DO transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture, according to the event website. The festival provides opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.
