who you are is welcome;
who you are becoming
is why we’re here.
Hart House is a place to dream. To imagine. To act. To create. Where we discover
what calls us and what holds us back. Where we take risks, confront barriers, discover
patience, find our voice and learn what pushes our buttons. It doesn’t matter whether
it’s at the bridge table or on the archery range. In the Debates Room or in the pool. In a
conversation in the Arbor Room or at a lecture in the Great Hall. All of these spaces are
                        fertile ground for further understanding ourselves.


                        Those who are drawn here come to experience the sounds in their
                        souls and the voices in their hearts. They come for the experience of
                        the deeper and the richer and the more enduring.


                        The Hart House Vision
                        Hart House is a living laboratory of social, artistic, cultural
                        and recreational experiences where all voices, rhythms and
                        traditions converge. As the vibrant home for the education of
                        the mind, body and spirit envisioned by its founders, Hart House
      encourages and supports activities that provide spaces for awakening the capacity
      for self-knowledge and self-expression.

    If a course is full you will be given the chance to be put on a waitlist for the course. When a space becomes available the
    first few people on the waitlist will be contacted. The first person to respond to our availability notice will be put in the

a maximum of 4 wines per class and have a sampling of food.
