Most of us have a busy work week which starts on Monday morning and ends on Friday late afternoon or evening. Aside from a busy professional work life, we also have a busy personal life week. Our weekend is an important time to rejuvenate us, gives us an opportunity to appreciate and reflect on what we have accomplished and most importantly forget about our professional life and dedicate our time and attention to our family and activities which we do not have the time to dedicate to during the week. Dancing? Good food? Art? Theater? Socializing? This #Sunday, #July 16, 2017 various festivals and events are taking place in Toronto which may just give you that.

Drawing from the BSM’s extensive circumpolar holdings and building upon information gathered during the Museum-sponsored field research trips to all Arctic nations, Art and Innovation showcases a vast variety of footwear, garments and tools, highlighting the artistry and ingenuity of the makers, and revealing different cultural identities, crafting techniques and spiritual meanings. http://www.batashoemuseum.ca/art-and-innovation
