Toronto Street Wisdom

"My personal wisdom?... to take care of myself".

The Wisdom Speakers Project took to the streets of Toronto in the Annex district and asked various people a couple of questions regarding Wisdom:

  1. What does the word "Wisdom" mean to you?
  2. What is your own personal wisdom? (or.. What is the most important thing you've learned so far in your life?)

We wanted to see how complete strangers walking the streets would respond. We were pleasantly surprised at the willingness of the people we approaced to give us their time and spend a few minutes to participate in this project. As you'll witness, we approached young and older to get various perspectives.

A common thread definitely stands out from these random interviews. Watch the video and discover what it is.

The music in this video is the song "Street Walk" by Gilles Gagnon.
