Toronto prides itself on its ability to welcome an eclectic and constantly evolving mix of people. The city is alive with ambition. With compassion. With a desire to carve meaning from chaos, and create lasting connections in the process.

Music and dance are powerful platforms to bring people together. Join 6 Degrees Presents to experience an incredible array of artists who are inspired, energized and mobilized in this city.

See some of the best of Toronto’s young talent live on-stage. Through music, spoken word, dance and creative collaboration, we will build bridges between cultures, art, and activism, and celebrate the essence of what it means to be a fully engaged citizen of the here and now.

How accessible is the venue?

The Great Hall is one of Toronto’s premier heritage venues, built in an era prior to regulations ensuring accessibility to people with disabilities. There is a long flight of fairly steep stairs at the entrace to the venue. If you have a mobility concern, please ask a volunteer for assistance when you arrive. We will be happy to help you find the accessible “Longboat Hall” entrance at the side of the building on Dovercourt Road. There is an elevator (and an attendant) who will help you make your way to the second floor. Thanks for your understanding.
