IDEAS Forum: Matter
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

As a complement to the exhibition ‘Matter’, TO DO and the Toronto Society of Architects present an Ideas Forum on the topic — a PechaKucha-style event (20 slides shown for 20 seconds each), featuring artists and designers from ‘Matter’, as well as other practitioners speaking to material transformation and change.
Speakers include Lars and Jason Dressler (Brothers Dressler), Joanne Byrne and Jonathan de Swaaf (Creators of Objects), Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell (Dear Human), Shannon Hilchie (Faet Lab), Habiba El-Sayed, JP King, James Michael Shaw, and Shane Williamson (Williamson Williamson).
Also join us for the opening reception of ‘Matter’ at Craft Ontario, 1106 Queen Street West, January 21, 3-6pm.
This event is part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO). The TSA is proud to be an Association Partner of TO DO.
