YIMBY Festival 2016: Massively Open

Saturday, September 24, 2016 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm

Metro Hall Rotunda, 55 John Street, Toronto

Join us for the 9th annual YIMBY (Yes In My Back Yard) Festival - we bring 100 community groups from across Toronto right to your fingertips in a social space to learn about what's happening, exchange ideas and strategies to make change, and turn the tables on politicians and policy makers.

Sign up for free workshops presented by our participants (to be announced soon!), peruse the info-tables & displays, chat with some new folks, or do it all - like our city, YIMBY is what you make it.

This year's theme is MASSIVELY OPEN - exploring how inclusivity & accessibility, and sharing connections, vulnerability, expertise, data, and more can strengthen our work. Through the festival, we will explore how various forms of openness can support us in realizing our collective hopes for a better Toronto - and what that looks like.

YIMBY is about empowering and educating ourselves and each other about the various issues facing our communities.

It is a chance to celebrate achievements and identify new challenges and opportunities in an atmosphere focused on listening, learning and engaging.
