Events: February 2011

Thanks for checking out our very first events post. Going to shows, lectures, and seminars is a great way to get inspired, learn more about your practice, and meet others in your industry. This is something Erika and I have been trying to actively do more as well. Thus, on the last Friday of each month we will put up a short list of events in Toronto for the following month. Here are a few shows that we are looking forward to in February.
