Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street
Join us for this eclectic evening of art, ideas, live music, conversation and drinks hosted by Nick Hutcheson. Two acclaimed Toronto writers – TV writer Josh Saltzman and playwright Julie Tepperman – will read from a few of their unpublished works, share insights into their creative process and reasons for abandoning or discarding these written pieces. They will also discuss why they think particular works don’t get to see the light of day.
Also enjoy special evening access to the Koffler Gallery – an opportunity to check out our current exhibition, Raymond Boisjoly: Over a distance between one and many.
