Brainstorm your social innovation with Adil

Got an idea to change the world? Share it with Adil and take it to the next level! Don't have an idea yet, but would love to get into the space? That's fine too! Adil will be more than happy to brainstorm new and out-of-the-box ideas on how to improve the world we live in.

Talk organization culture or the city with Adil

If there's two things Adil knows well, it's organizational culture and the city. He's the first Director of Culture in Canada and was named "one of the best of TO" recently for his work in public spaces and events around civic engagement.

Jam with Adil

Love to play the ukulele? Have a jam session with Adil! As a co-founder of Project Ukulele Gangsterism, Adil loves to strum along and make people happy through the ukulele.

Adil Dhalla is the Director of Culture at CSI as well as the founder of Project Ukulele Gangsterism, Turnout Toronto and Sharefest Toronto.

Adil is the bow tie wearing, ukulele playing, entrepreneuring, Director of Culture at the Centre for Social Innovation. Belonging to one of the first graduating classes at The York School (Class of 2001), Adil went on to receive his undergraduate degree in History from Queen's University and his MBA from Wilfrid Laurier University, although he admits to never being a "great student".

Always restless, Adil's story is one filled with great risks and great adventures, such as when he worked on the Barack Obama campaign in Brooklyn or when he travelled to rural Tanzania to work for a technology-based non-governmental organization. It was while in Tanzania that Adil realized the potential for technology to disrupt the information space and his work has since led him to many successes including now working with publishers to change how we access the news.

Videos

The first video of Project Ukulele Gangsterism's Toronto Subway Hack. The second video is Adil's "Screw the world save your neighbourhood" talk at TEDxIB@YorkSchool.

Adil became a pioneer in the mobile video space when he co-launched My City Lives, a local video platform that had presence in 250 cities worldwide. It was this experience in social entrepreneurship that lead him to CSI and the social innovation movement. In his role as the Director of Culture, Adil gets to act as the glue for the 1500 innovators who call CSI home, constantly weaving together connections and shared purpose through socials, summits and storytelling.

Adil also co-founded Project Ukulele Gangsterism (PUG), a musical project created to disrupt space and spread happiness. PUG has received international attention and seen satellite groups form in the United States, Korea, and more. PUG is inspired by the Emersonian idea that while some pursue happiness, others create it. PUG is the first recipient of The Centre for Social Innovation's Awesome Fund.

Adil has spoken at TEDxQueen'sUniversity and TEDxIB@YorkSchool about the future of online video and is constantly called upon to give talks about entrepreneurship, social innovation and his love for the ukulele.
