Arts and Culture programming celebrates the diverse culture of Toronto and invites students to explore the city and its culture. It also challenges students to take a deeper interest in the arts and discover the creative talents around them through events such as the Nuit Blanche scavenger hunt, music shows and photography lessons! Check out the Student Life Newsletter for updates!
Spirituality and Diversity programming encourages students to challenge not only their views of the world, but also of themselves.
Through the celebration of a plurality of cultures, orientations and opinions, this portfolio aims to foster greater ties throughout the community. On the agenda for this year are events such as Diwali celebrations, movie screenings with discussions and so much more. You won’t want to miss it!
