A Brief History

Open Eyes Toronto (OYT) is a creative collective that generates dialogue, design and response to current issues and daily life in Toronto. OYT began in 2008 when two local architects were feeling a bit uninspired by the city - so they invited friends and friends of friends to a living room in the Annex to share creative documentation about what’s happening in the city. In recent years OYT has grown to attract several hundreds and has been hosted at the Centre for Social Innovation and the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto. Interesting work and display serve as a the backdrop for conversation and community.



Some people brought photos, others showed work-in-progress.  
























Last years event at the Centre for Social Innovation brought out a few hundred people despite the rain and saw many interesting contributions from people across the city.





















We’re looking forward to this coming November's OYT event, What is your condo life? (link) Hope to see you there!
