2010 Toronto Pursuits in the Summer
Sunday, July 11 to Friday, July 16, 2010
About 150 people from across Canada and at least 20 states will gather on the shady garden campus of the University of Toronto. About half will be returnees and half will be there for the first time. About half will be working and half will be retired. They will range in age from early thirties to mid-eighties. Some will stay in a new campus residence; others will opt for a nearby hotel. Still others will commute each day from home.
Out-of-towners and first-timers get started on Sunday afternoon, July 11, with an optional demonstration in the Shared Inquiry method of discussion and a guided walking tour of Toronto’s art and architecture. The program gets into full swing on Monday morning with the convening of the seminars, which take place concurrently each morning. The seminars are small, capped at fifteen participants. At noon we gather for an excellent lunch. Each afternoon and evening, you may choose from a wide variety of cultural and social activities both on and off the campus – topical talks, walking tours, film screenings, small dinners and much more. On Thursday evening, there will be an optional excursion to the historic Distillery District for a production of the Soulpepper Theatre Company. We have two gala receptions, one on Monday evening and the other at the conclusion of the week on Friday.
Choose one seminar option and/or our afternoon ART seminar. Full descriptions are on the following links.
Daily afternoon art excursions may be selected in addition to or instead of a morning seminar. Different fees apply.
