City Mosaic 2024: Stories in the City (I)

Every individual and place has a story to tell.

Come join us in this year’s City Mosaic: Stories in the City — experience each at a time a guided cultural exploration of a neighbourhood in Toronto in a series of day trips, the first being Little Tibet and the Parkdale neighbourhood.

We invite you to spend a June Saturday together with dozens of youth and young adults; have a taste of Tibetan art, food, cultures and engage with our great storytellers in the Tibetan cultural community; discover the history of Little Tibet and the contribution of Tibetan immigrants and entrepreneurs to the local culinary scene in Parkdale.

Make friends and much more!
