We'll be holding our next Toronto-area meeting on Sunday Dec 8th at 2pm at one of our member's residence by Yonge & St.Clair, where we'll be looking at paintings and colour swatches, listening to sounds, and discussing our synesthetic experiences. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for the address & directions.
We will be having our next meeting on Sunday Nov 3rd at 2pm in the upstairs front room of Tequila Bookworm (512 Queen Street West, near Bathurst) . All synesthetes are welcome. We'll be discussing how synesthesia has influenced us, what we've learnt from it, and what knowledge we can pass on to other synesthetes to help them explore and utilize their abilities. This meeting is only open to synesthetes though we will have other events in the future that are open to researchers and those with a general interest in synesthesia.
The Canadian Synesthesia Association will be holding a Toronto area drinks meet up at 7:30pm, Tuesday Sept 17th, in the upstairs front room at Tequila Bookworm, 512 Queen St W, Toronto, ON, M5V 2B3 (Queen & Bathurst).
This is a synesthete-only event, however there are other forthcoming events open also to researchers and non-synis with an interest in synesthesia. The CSA hopes to facilitate similar meet ups amongst synesthetes in other major Canadian cities in the future.
The Canadian Synesthesia Association will be launching during the ASA's 10th global synesthesia conference, being hosted by the Colour Research Society of Canada and OCADU in Toronto from Fri May 31st - Sun June 2nd, 2013.
