exhibition in-person

‘Nourish’ an exhibition that investigates the unifying power of food.

It serves as a poignant reminder of our shared humanity, emphasizing our commonalities while celebrating our differences. Drawing upon the diversity within Mason Studio, and our vibrant city of Toronto, this exhibition orbits around a dish present across various cultures: the dumpling. The Cultural Hub at Mason Studio is a space where you can learn about different types of dumplings from around the world, and its origins, through immersive activities. Guests can explore the dumpling’s impact and history at The Gallery, with an exhibit showcasing recipes, photos and writing from an array of Toronto chefs.

Throughout Festival Week, three unique cooking demonstrations will take place at a communal table designed by Mason Studio’s team, offering a space to sit, eat and connect with others. These multisensory learning sessions combine in-depth discussions with culinary leaders and the chefs at hand, with an opportunity to taste the dumpling prepared.

Nourish spotlights local businesses, artisans, industry leaders, and the community at large, collectively examining how food serves as a catalyst for social enrichment, economic revitalization, and environmental change.
