Join us for discussion that will centre around the Sikh community in Toronto (and Toronto area), shattering normative ideas of the ideal Sikh.

Enjoy refreshments and snacks while engaging in open dialogue. For the curious and open-minded. All are welcome. You don't need to be a Sikh or know anything about Sikhi to attend.

The event will begin with a conversation between our speakers, followed by an open dialogue with all of our guests. Bring all of your weird, wild and wonderful questions!
