The first festival of its kind in Canada, CRAM is the first time that Toronto’s universities will come together for this shared purpose. The festival allows attendees to move freely between university campuses to explore the city’s brain power.

“There’s an abundance of innovative, multidisciplinary research taking place in our universities which has the power to revolutionize the way we think, live and work,” says Mary Ito, CRAM Founder and broadcast journalist.

“We need to know about this research. Giving everyone access to new ideas from diverse voices can spark our civic imagination and potentially change how we live our lives.”
