Social Planning Toronto 60 Year Anniversary

cal  Thu Sep 14
6:30-9:30pm

Bram & Bluma Appel Salon Toronto Reference Library, 2nd Floor 789 Yonge Street, Toronto

On May 7, 1957, the Social Planning Council of Metropolitan Toronto was formally established, replacing the Welfare Council of Toronto. Since then, Social Planning Toronto has spent 60 years providing critical social research and reporting, community capacity-building and engagement as well as evidence based advocacy for Toronto and its communities.

You´re Invited

Our 60th anniversary event will be an evening reception, celebrating and featuring voices from the past, present and future of our organization, the community and nonprofit sector and the broader city.

This event will spotlight a series of key accomplishments of the year as well as key efforts to build a stronger network.

Our over 350 attendees will be a diverse cross-section of our city, including prominent and influential decision makers and community leaders, elected officials, passionate and engaged residents, nonprofit staff, artists and workers.

Our reception will take place at the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library. Located close to the Bloor-Yonge subway station, this distinctive and elegant space is the venue of choice of high-profile literary and cultural programs.

Vive la résistance! Groundswell Celebration Dinner

cal  Sat Sep 16
7pmGr

Hawthorne Food and Drink 60 Richmond Street East

Join us at The Hawthorne on September 16th to honour the

2017 Groundwell Grantees. You can buy tickets for $100 each

on our website. If you can´t make the dinner, consider donating

a ticket to allow representatives from the organizations we fund to attend:

https://groundswellfund.ca/dinner/

Groundswell raises money for organizations and projects

dedicated to social justice. Many groups face serious constraints

when trying to fund political work that directly confronts power

imbalances and systemic injustice. Our goal is to build a growing

network of people who are willing to donate money to fund this

important work. Groundswell is volunteer-run and is not a charity.

Your donation will help us to support the incredible work of organ-

izations like Black Artists for Black Lives and Butterfly, a support

network for Asian and Migrant Sex Workers.

The Hawthorne is a social enterprise dedicated to skills training for

workers in the hospitality sector and is an initiative of UNITE HERE, Local 75.

Tickets are limited, so make sure you buy early!

Open Streets TO

cal  Sun Sep 17
10-2pm

various - see website

Open Streets TO is the city’s largest free recreation program, unlike any other in Toronto or Canada.

We´ve created a world-class program that connects our diverse neighbourhoods and people across the city.

Open Streets are programs where the streets are temporarily opened to people and closed to cars. People traffic replaces car traffic, and the streets become “paved parks” where people of all ages, abilities, and social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds can come out and improve their health.

Open Streets TO is focused on promoting physical activity and exploring our city in healthy and fun ways.

We connect diverse communities across Toronto through our greatest public space - our streets! Along our open streets route we create windows into different neighbourhoods through Activity Hubs.

Activity Hubs are programmed by local community partners. They offer free activities to keep people´s brains and minds active through arts, physical activity or cultural programming

Liberating Structures Immersion Workshop

cal  Wed Oct 11 - Thu Oct 12
9-5pm both days

The 519 - 519 Church St.

Join Keith McCandless, Liz Rykert, and the active community of LS practitioners in Toronto for a roll up your sleeves and dig deep 2-day immersion workshop at the 519 Community Centre.

This workshop will focus on the themes of Reaching In and Reaching Out, and how the use of Liberating Structures can break our perceptions on how best to work together and how best to serve our communities and client base. Day I will focus on internal "reaching in” patterns and “how to" liberate everyday meetings. Day II will build on Day I by exploring “reaching out” to your clients/customers/students/patients and shaping next steps or innovations together. Both days are designed for both experienced LS users and people just getting started.

Liberating Structures offer creative, inclusive approaches to organize group interactions in ways that lead to purposeful action quickly. Based on insights from complexity science, we will briefly examine the underlying micro-organizing elements of every interaction before diving in and practicing together.

Specifically with private, nonprofit, and public sector organizations and individuals in mind, the two days will be packed full of opportunities to learn up to 25 Liberating Structures. You will learn alongside people who are themselves just getting started or who may be seasoned practitioners looking to up their game.

2 day corporate/private rate: $650 + hst

1 day corporate/private rate: $325 + hst

2 day nonprofit/public rate: $375 + hst

1 day nonprofit/public rate: $190 + hst

This is a physically accessible and anti-discriminatory venue. Please contact erin@metastrategies.com with any questions or comments about accessibility.

There are so many different ways to lend a helping hand – to ourselves, to our families, to our friends and to our communities.
