My City my six – Canada 150

In celebration of this year’s Cultural Hotspot and Canada’s 150, Toronto Arts and Culture in collaboration with the city’s six local arts service organizations are inviting Toronto residents to send in a six word story that reveals something essential about themselves, to tell the story of the people of our city.  In fall 2017, a city-wide exhibition on transit shelters, in transit and in public spaces featuring selected stories will be launched.

Here’s an example of Toronto’s Poet Laureate, Anne Michaels’ six-word story,

“We belong where love finds us”.

From February through May, Toronto residents of all ages can share their six words via email to and are asked to include their first name, the name of your neighbourhood and age. More information is available at and on social media using #mycitymysix.

What would your six words be?
