Event description

Description


A well-designed place doesn't just look good; it feels good, sounds good and smells good. In fact, good multi-sensory places attract visitors, make them happy and instill in them a sense of ownership and care for that place. Yet we often prioritize vision over the other senses. To get out of the habit of privileging vision, understand the importance of multi-sensory design, and learn how to experience the city through your non-visual senses, come on a Blindfolded Tour of Toronto!

We meet at the starting point, chat about safety and what to expect (5 mins). You don the blindfold and the walking begins. Holding onto a thin string, I guide you through a range of multi-sensory urban environments. After 50-55 minutes, you remove the blindfold and we retrace our steps while sharing insights from the walk (15mins).

Blindfolded Walking Tours were featured at the Toronto Offsite Design Festival (2016, 2017) where they were acclaimed by the Globe and Mail, CBC, Now Toronto, BlogTO, Toronto Sun, and chosen as "expert picks" by critics from Azure and the Globe and Mail.
