Hart House Standing Committee Descriptions

Standing Committees meet approximately every 3 weeks – some in the morning, some in the evening depending on student availability. Through your commitment and input you will learn about committee process, event planning and management, and financial management – at the same time as making your voice heard and your ideas a reality! Hart House has long stood as a place of learning, expression and fun. Be a part of that action!


Art

Work in association with the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery that produces a year-round program of contemporary art exhibitions, artist and curatorial residencies, and educational events. Have an active role in research, guided tours, receptions, lectures, screenings, and visits with artists and curators.


Debates

Bring dialogue, discussion and debate about important issues to campus. Develop your skills in public speaking, organization and promotion. Organize major invitational and high school debating tournaments. Participate in community outreach projects with local high schools.


Farm

Work and play at the 150-acre Hart House Farm in the Caledon Hills. Plan and execute four seasonal celebrations, help preserve the Farm’s natural beauty, develop and review policies for the use of the Farm. There is no better place to learn “outside the classroom” than at Hart House Farm.


Finance

Ensure fair allocation of the Hart House budget in support of student programming and the many services and expenses that ensure Hart House’s financial viability for future UofT students. Monitor financial performance, analyze the annual budget, make recommendations for long range planning, and oversee the annual audit process.


Music

Bring great musical sounds and experiences to UofT! Learn about the music industry from event production, concert coordination, music publicity and booking artists. Hart House hosts over 50 musical events a year – from the urban sounds of the city to innovative jazz riffs, classic melodies and an open mic night. Write, design, edit and produce DEMO, our very own music magazine.


Literary & Library

Explore and promote the literary arts through management and maintenance of the Library collection, organizing monthly readings and literary pubs, running annual contests for poetry and short stories, designing writers’ workshops and writing groups, and publishing the annual Hart House Review.


Recreational Athletics

Help plan classes/programs for fitness, dance, Pilates, yoga and racquet sports. Organize and volunteer at special events including the Indoor Triathlon, curling bonspiel, golf day, ski days, and Bike Month Breakfast. Participate in the planning of state-of-the-art equipment acquisition.


Social Justice

Raise awareness about social and environmental issues by hosting events that provide an open forum for members of on and off campus social justice groups to meet and collaborate. Connecting students to community groups creates valuable opportunities for education and participation through a broad range of social justice issues. Get involved on the Hart House Sustainability Committee.


Theatre

Join the blend of students and professionals, actors, play wrights, film makers, dancers, directors, musicians, and technicians in a unique formal and informal educational opportunity. Participate in the creation of the Hart House Theatre’s Season. Help organize three annual festivals: Drama, Film and Dance.
