FESTIVAL 2017: YIMBY10 - 10 Years of Grassroots Celebration

WHO SHOULD APPLY: Grassroots and community-based organizations and groups of all shapes and sizes that work in or support Toronto's grassroots activity! We prioritize organizations and groups that have social, environmental, economic, and educational missions. 

Please Note: YIMBY collects a small fee from registrants to support the hard costs of running the festival – $25 for a shared table. Due to space restrictions, we are unable to offer full tables to participants this year.

Once your application is approved, you will be sent a link for payment to confirm your registration.

This year's YIMBY Festival will be hosted at the Metro Hall Rotunda at 55 John Street on Saturday, December 9th. To celebrate YIMBY's 10 Year Anniversary, we have partnered with Spacing Magazine to present the Jane Jacobs Prize -  an annual award that celebrates individuals who contribute to the fabric of Toronto life in unique ways that exemplify the ideas of Jane Jacobs.

The schedule is as follows
12:30-1:30pm - Table and workshop set up
1:30-4:30pm - Festival open to public
4:30 pm-5:30pm - Jane Jacobs Prize and post-event networking

The core of the YIMBY Festival Programming is an interactive information fair where community groups set up table displays and connect with the public. There will also be opportunities to go beyond hosting a shared table by hosting an interactive experience for attendees in addition to hosting a table! Some examples of interactive experiences include hosting a workshop, curating an art installation, demonstrating a tool or skill, etc.

Details about programming will be available to registrants in the coming month.
