This winter, find joy and community by exploring questions about different topics and readings in the liberal arts at the Thomas More Institute.

Lifelong learners and lovers of reading and conversation are invited to attend its Winter 2021 Open House on Saturday, 16th January on Zoom.

The Winter 2021 Demi-Term features primarily six-week discussion courses in the liberal arts. Courses like “Ekphrasis: Exploring Art Through Poetry” and “Shakespeare the Poet” supplement our daily doses of art and theatre, and bring us into conversation with other appreciators of the arts.

Founded in 1945, Montreal’s Thomas More Institute (TMI) has for 75 years been providing adults of all ages opportunities to cultivate their curiosity about wide-ranging questions rooted in a variety of fields. TMI is a secular, liberal arts academic institution that offers university-level discussion courses as well as other opportunities for lifelong learning. Our discussions differ from the lectures offered elsewhere as group members are invited to participate collaboratively in a process of shared inquiry and reflection.
