Toronto is getting a free sauna that's popping up in places around the city
Have you ever heard of a sauna in a music and arts venue featuring a series of curated video artworks playing inside? Neither have I, but sign me up!
Mobile Sweat is a nomadic wood-fired sauna and mobile platform for contemporary art put on by Art Spin.
An outdoor event, the project consists of a 16-foot utility trailer transformed by artist Chris Foster into a fully-functioning sauna, designed to accommodate a variety of arts programming. It aims to get you sweating while experiencing art.
Next up is a co-commissioned event by the Harbourfront Centre, as part of the Festival of Cool. It wraps up Harbourfront Centre’s year-long cultural initiative, Nordic Bridges with spectacle and celebration.
In the winter, mobile Sweat will tour across Ontario as a part of Art Spin's larger project, Public Sweat, and will be activated in collaboration with host organizations and guest curators.
It's next open in Toronto from Dec. 8 to 18, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Harbourfront Centre North East Pavillion.
