Student Life Events at St. George

Toronto Tour & Taste: Bata Shoe Museum

Jan 27, 2023 01:00 PM to 04:00 PM

Registration Deadline: Jan 26, 2023 11:59 PM

CIE's Toronto Tour & Taste series invites international students to experience the community surrounding the St. George campus. Each month we will visit a new location to explore and learn. We will then follow our tour up with a stop at a local restaurant to sample new dishes and flavours, hearing from the owners and/or chef about their personal connections to the community. You'll also have the chance to meet other students along the way. Join us as we venture beyond campus and engage with the Toronto community.
 
This month, we will be taking a guided tour of the Great Divide Exhibition at the Bata Shoe Museum. We will learn about footwear during the Age of Enlightenment and how it was used to reinforce differences among those with access and privileges during this period of time and those who did not. We will follow up our 1-hour tour with a visit to a local family eatery to sample new flavours and continue our conversations. 

CIE's Toronto Tour & Tastes series is only open to U of T students of the St. George campus. 

Day-of details including meeting location will be emailed directly to registered participants. Please send any questions and accommodation requests to Hannah Souza: hannah.souza@utoronto.ca
