Toronto's new arts salon is like a concert and TED Talk

Salons may have dominated social scenes in centuries past, but one Toronto-based company is giving them a 2015 makeover.

Marketing agency Klick Health started its MUSE events in Boston last February to inspire and unite those working in the arts, science and high-tech fields. To do so, it brings together high-profile speakers for TED-like talks. It also showcases performers, musicians and innovative pieces of technology.

For MUSE Toronto, presenters include legendary locals like Margaret Atwood and David Cronenberg as well as individuals such as pianist ELEW, dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis and Canadian violinist Adrian Anantawan.

Tickets are free but to attend the event you have to join the waitlist.
