Sidewalk Labs

Join Myseum for the launch of “307”, Sidewalk Toronto’s new experimental workspace at Quayside. We’ll be hosting our first Myseum Collects of 2018, inviting members of the community to share their stories and ephemera & objects in order to influence and contribute to an online exhibit on Transportation in Toronto. Share your cycling, railway, ferry, automotive story with a community “knowledge keeper” and learn more about how it contributes to the larger (hi)story of how we move in and around our city!

In addition to this, Myseum will also be offering a family-friendly origami art-making activity, facilitated by Vibe Arts.

We’re excited to join Sidewalk Labs for the kick-off of their first “Open Sidewalk”, a monthly event series designed for people of all ages and abilities that will feature prototypes, performances, workshops, and other activities. Once an old fish processing plant, 307 has been transformed into an experimental work space and will be open every weekend to the public.
