Toronto’s Festival of House Culture

What’s house culture?

… House Culture simply means doing stuff together, face-to-face, and at each others’ homes; instead of alone, online, or in commercial venues. It can be normal activities like cooking, playing games, or listening to music; or less common things like a clothing swap, shadow puppet-making workshop, or meeting about how to lower our neighbourhood’s carbon footprint. The activities can be cultural in the artistic sense of the word – as in a comedy, dance, or theatre show – or just because they’re done together, as with a yoga class, singles night, or work party. crowd

House Culture is ultimately about bringing people together. Those of us who’ve experienced it have seen a magical feeling of connection between people that’s uncommon in this society. It’s the special wonder that arises when folks engage in an inclusive, openhearted activity, held together by the boundaries of a small, comfortable space.

Such shared experiences renew our faith in life, reminding us of what really matters. And this has the potential to transform how we relate to ourselves, each other, the arts, community, society, and our planet.
