Join Myseum of Toronto for Myseum on the Move, a free pop-up program on Saturday, August 1st from 11:30am to 3:30pm at the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival Grand Parade (Exhibition Place, near the VIP Section); Thursday, August 27th from 3:00pm to 6:00pm at Elmbank Community Centre; Friday, August 28th from 5:00pm to 8:30pm at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives; and Saturday, September 26th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm at the Toronto Botanical Gardens.

Focusing on the natural, built and cultural layers that make Toronto a rich urban environment, Myseum of Toronto is asking people of all ages to share their objects and stories to document the experiences that help us create meaning in our city. Your sharing will help the Myseum to build its first digital collection that represents the diversity of experience in Toronto. 

Participants will be asked questions about their object or story such as: Why are they important to you? What does it add to the story of Toronto? How did you acquire it? How old you think it is? Is there anything you would like to learn about the object or story? Multidisciplinary “Myseum Experts” will be on site to document and discuss the importance of objects and stories with participants.

Registration is free and encouraged. To register please follow the links below.

A non-profit organization managed by a group of private citizens, Myseum of Toronto tells the story of Toronto’s natural spaces, cultures, history, archaeology and architecture. Using Toronto as the exhibit, the Myseum will not be one place, it will be every place. The Myseum will be co-created by all present and former Torontonians from across the GTA and around the world.
