The Centre for Social Innovation has just ‘gone firm’ on the purchase of 192 Spadina! This spectacular 64,000 square foot brick and beam building was built in 1920 and is known as the Murray Building.

On July 16, 2014, the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI), in partnership with the Institute for a Resource-Based Economy (creators of the Toronto Tool Library), Studio Y, ShareTO, Social Innovation Generation and a collective of sharing organizations in Toronto, invited the city’s sharers and uninitiated to #ShareFestTO, a night of celebrating and building connections in the flourishing sharing economy.
