Back by popular demand, join us for City Social Hour on July 28 for connections and refreshments at our exhibition, 36 Questions that Lead to Loving Toronto. We invite Torontonians to come with friends or alone, and to explore the commitment we have to the city and to each other. Get deep, have fun, be brutally honest about what you love or hate (and everything in between) about our city and connect with someone new.
This event welcomes participants who are looking for new friendships, city soulmates, civic accomplices, post-isolation connections, street explorers, good company, and more…
Participants will be matched with fellow Torontonians to explore the exhibition and share their answers. In addition to ‘city speed dating’, mingle with your loved ones, your old and new friends over drinks, conversation, and Toronto-themed ice-breakers.
Register now at the link in the sidebar to reserve a spot to this fun (and free!) social event. Hurry, spaces are limited!
City Social Hour is also happening on August 11, learn more.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The concept of 36 Questions originates from “The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness: A Procedure and Some Preliminary Findings,” a paper published in 1997 by psychologist Arthur Aron, and popularized by the New York Times as “The 36 Questions That Lead to Love.”
This exhibition is being presented in person at Myseum’s new space at 401 Richmond. Detailed directions, opening hours, important covid policies, and accessibility information can be found in the blue sidebar to the right of the page.
This project was conceived by Nadine Villasin Feldman and conceptualised by a team composed of Kathleen Lew, Nathan Heuvingh, Zambrine Saeed, Judy Koke and narrative environment designer Christine Elson.
Myseum is made possible with the generous support of Diane Blake and Stephen Smith.
Sponsored by Junction Craft Brewery.
