29Rooms

Exhibition Place – Queen Elizabeth Building | September 26th – October 5th | Tickets

For the first time in Toronto, Refinery29 hosts 29Rooms at Exhibition Place at Queen Elizabeth Building from September 26 – October 5. With 29 unique (and Instagram-able) experiences under one roof, you’ll literally be dancing, palm-reading, crafting, posing and MORE in a world of causes, culture, & creativity in a really cool space.

New to the 29Rooms tour this year is The Travelling Billboard – a full-scale billboard mural by locally-based artists, welcoming guests to 29Rooms and highlighting talent from each tour community. The mural, exclusive to Toronto, will be created by author and artist of Trust No Aunty and HATECOPY, Maria Qamar. Qamar creates pop art about the life and times of first-generation Indians living in the West through a satirical lens.
