Commemorating 100 years of Hart House takes many forms: literature, photography, art, and landmark commissions that solidify Hart House’s valuable contribution to the University of Toronto Community. The following initiatives have been selected to showcase the many areas in which Hart House has explored civic engagement, student leadership and community involvement.
Students from St.Michael’s College have reflected on the significance of the books in the Hart House Library collection, and with the help of special QR codes placed inside books chosen, future readers can read the students’ reflections of those selected.
For its centennial celebration, Hart House, with the assistance of the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, is commissioning a major, permanent artwork by an Indigenous artist to transform our historic Great Hall.
The Alumni, students, and friends of Hart House have combed their closets and archives to create an exciting 100th Anniversary installation of artifacts representing 100 years of Hart House history “Hart House: 100 Years, 100 Objects”.
A Story Weaving project in association with Hart House’s 100th Anniversary. Curated and Directed by Jill Carter (Assistant Professor at the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance, Indigenous Studies and the Transitional Year Programme at the University of Toronto).
