     Join us at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Toronto) as ULI Toronto and Akin lead a group ‘fishbowl’ discussion on social purpose real estate with a unique and eclectic group of city builders and cultural leaders.
    • Why is the need for social purpose real estate emerging in the fabric of our growing city and what are the barriers on both sides of the fence?
    • How can developers create unique partnerships and collaborations with non profits and other community-focused groups to address space needs and provide a social good?
    • How can a booming real estate market in a fast growing city be leveraged to foster a climate where innovative and necessary but less profitable enterprises and causes can thrive and support communities?
    • What are some of the successes we can look to in Toronto, and abroad, as we have a frank and open discussion around the impact and future of social purpose real estate in the fabric of our city?

    What is a fishbowl conversation? Part panel talk and part group brainstorm, a fishbowl conversation is intended to help facilitate large group discussions- allowing the entire audience to participate in the conservation or simply listen. A small group of participants have been selected to fill the fishbowl, along with empty chairs available for others to join in as desired.

    Accessibility: MOCA Toronto aims to be a barrier-free and accessible museum for all. This discussion will be hosted on the first floor of the building where there is an all gender washroom with automated entrances and accessible stalls with grab bars. Two wheelchairs are available for use, and service animals are welcome. Should you have any other needs or accommodation requests, including ASL interpretation,  please let us know at [email protected] to make arrangements.
