What is a tertulia? A tertulia can be described as a literary and artistic social gathering or philosophy cafe where participants talk about ideas. Tertulias combine words, music, poetry, art and whatever else speakers want to share.

New time/new place! Our tertulias this winter will take place on Wednesdays at 7:00pm at Milda’s Pizzas in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, 732 Charlotte St.. Come early and order delicious pizza or treats made with seasonal local produce and beverages.
