FROM HOGTOWN TO DOWNTOWN:
THE HISTORY OF TORONTO IN 10 WEEKS

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! COURSE BEGINS JANUARY 20, 2022!

The history of Toronto is filled with fascinating stories that teach us about ourselves and our community. In this ten-week online course, we'll explore the city's past from a time long before it was founded, through its days as a rowdy frontier town, and all the way to the sprawling megacity we know today. How did Toronto become the multicultural metropolis of the twenty-first century? The answer involves everything from duels to broken hearts to pigeons.


Format: This course will include 10 weekly lectures on Zoom with a chance to interact and ask questions, as well as a list of recommended readings & viewings. Each week's lecture will last approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Every lecture will also be available to stream online later for anyone who can't make that week's class.

Dates: January 20 to March 24, 2022.

Time: Class will begin at 8pm every Thursday night.

Format: Each week's lecture will last approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.

Cost: $195 + tax.

Registration: To enroll in the course, simply email adam@torontodreamsproject.com with your full name and the subject line "From Hogtown To Downtown: Registration" and I'll follow up to arrange payment via e-transfer or cheque, whichever you prefer.

If more than one person in your household would like to take the course, feel free to sit in on the lectures together — you only need to pay one fee per screen.


If you have any other questions, email me at adam@torontodreamsproject.com and I'll be very happy to answer them.
