Information sur les billets

La vente de billets pour cet événement est maintenant terminée.


Come together to celebrate Parkdale Project Read, an adult literacy organization where people come to learn, dream, and work collaboratively with volunteers and members of a staff collective to build community.  Parkdale Project Read began in 1980 when former public library worker, storyteller, and literacy advocate, Dr. Rita Cox decided to establish a literacy program at the Parkdale Library.  It became an independent community organization in 1986, celebrating 30 years and counting of community adult literacy work. It has fought hard, and, with support from its members and from the larger social justice community, continues to fight hard for its member-driven model of collaborative decision-making and collective action.



As part of our raffle draw, the famous Gladstone Hotel has graciously donated a complimentary stay for 1 or 2 people in one of their "classic" hotel rooms. Enjoy a night of art and relaxation at this unique Toronto establishment.

There will be a DJ and dance floor starting at 9:00!

This is a pay-what-you-can event, open to all members of our community.  If you can support PPR by buying a $15 ticket in advance, or paying $20 at the door, we urge you to do that.  And if dinner is in your budget, we urge you to reserve a table with Lula Lounge, 416-588-0307, as a vote of thanks to Lula for supporting this event.  Lula will be giving 10% of all proceeds from food and drink to PPR.

So come as you are, pay what you can, have dinner if you like, and dance, dance, dance to celebrate over 30 years of community literacy in Parkdale.

Doors open at 6.  Performance at 7.

À propos de cet organisme

Parkdale Project Read is a non-profit, community-based literacy program that operates an adult learning centre in the Parkdale community. At Project Read, we support adults to realize their learning goals by providing free literacy services in a supportive community. We work with English-speaking adults who want to learn to read, write, or use basic math or computer skills. We are dedicated to creating a comfortable and accessible learning environment where students can bring their whole self (body, mind, emotions, spirit) to learning. Project Read believes in a learner-based approach – it is the student who decides how and what they learn. Our trained, volunteer tutors work with individual or groups of learners to help them find the best way to learn.
