Raise Your Voice
The U of T Humanities Department’s Voicing Toronto Conference is a mixture of lectures, screenings, performances and readings. Attempting to rope in six humanistic disciplines, they’re offering something for everyone, or at least for anyone who lives in Toronto and enjoys the occasional foray into obscure local history. The film events include works by Don McKellar, Clement Virgo and David Cronenberg. The music component includes shows about Glenn Gould’s Toronto and A Toronto Songbook. And the art component is a show that attempts to explore the idea of Toronto art. Also of note is a show of Toronto souvenirs, as curated by the MA Museum Studies students at the U of T. At least someone is saving all those misspelled ‘I survived Sars’ Tees for posterity.
