April 4: Story of Self workshop

CSI’s Director of Coworking Design & Operations, Gonzalo Duarte, hosted the final workshop of our series, Story of Self 101, focused on how our experiences and values shape our sense of self. We think it’s safe to say that lots of learning, and fun, was had! 📸 Mónica Olvera, CSI Member

April 11: SiX Degrees featuring Psychedelics Association of Canada

Our latest SiX Degrees event featured Psychedelic Association of Canada (PAC). Throughout the evening, we brought together CSI members, PAC members, and the general public. We heard from PAC Executive Director, Jay Katz, about their work in advocating for access to psychedelics and learned from audience members, too. There was lots of mingling, eating, chatting, and drinking – as always at a CSI event!

April 17: CSI Cinema & National Canadian Film Day

We celebrated National Canadian Film Day with CSI Member Reel Canada! We hosted a wonderful screening of “Unarmed Verses” by acclaimed director Charles Officer, and followed the film with an insightful panel discussion led by CSI Member Warda Youssouf of House of Arts, featuring Spencer Phillips, Executive Director of Art Starts, the community arts program featured in the film, and with Yazmeen Kanji, a Hot Docs Accelerator Fellow and the CEO of Films With A Cause. Thanks to all who came out to celebrate Canadian film with us!

We exist in a world with overlapping crises that we wake up and face everyday. And so the next generation of climate action must tell a different story, and reflect a different reality. A reality where climate investments meaningfully improve the lives of residents, where every community in the country feels connected to the work, where we acknowledge the stakes and get down to the hard work of building a world that breaks down the individualistic silos and shows how much better life could be.
