Don’t miss the Pancakes & Booze Art Show!

 

If you were to make a list of some of your favourite things, would pancakes, booze and art make it onto that list? We thought so. Prepare to have your hunger sated, your thirst quenched, and your appetite for art satisfied – all at the same time! It’s not magic, it’s the Pancakes and Booze Art Show! The show is making a stop in Toronto during its North American tour. It all happens on October 14th at the Opera House (735 Queen Street East).

 

What is it?

 

The name says it all, kind of. It’s an art show, but it’s not your typical gallery experience. Some art galleries serve wine, but we don’t know of any that serve free pancakes! Since 2009 the show has filled venues in cities across North America. Every show features between 50 and 150 local artisans and live performances from bands, DJs, live painting, body painting and more. It’s a celebration and showcase of local artists of all kinds – as well as a great excuse to eat pancakes! We spoke to Tom from thePancakes & Booze Art Show to get a clearer picture.

So Tom, what are some highlights of the Toronto edition of this event?

 

Personally, I’m excited to have Ryan Mcgee (IG @ryan.mcgee.design). I really love what he’s doing right now. Sara McIntyre (@sarassoapsandcandles) is coming out with some great candles for the Halloween season.  Also a HUGE fan of Braeden Arnold’s prints and patches (braedenarnold.com). We’ve also got some great DJs lined up which we’ll be announcing as the week progresses.

What makes your event unique?

 

Where else can you get art, libations and free pancakes?! Pancakes are a fantastic gateway to get people interested in supporting local artists. Who knew?

What keeps the event going strong year after year?

 

It’s an experience most people have never thought about combining so the name always gets a reaction of “wait…what?” Once someone’s inside they’re usually hooked. The art is all local to Toronto area artists and most of it is financially attainable for the average Joe.

Don’t miss this unique art show, cocktail party and pancake dinner on October 14th. The Pancakes & Booze Art Show seeks to connect the art community with the community at large. It’s an environment where artists, patrons and pancakes come together to create something beautiful. Dig in!

Listen and learn at the Hot Docs Podcast Festival!

 

The first Hot Docs Podcast Festival tested the waters in Toronto last year, starting out as a small project hoping to garner some attention. The festival attracted enormous audiences and generated some fabulous feedback, paving the way for this year’s bigger and better experience. Don’t miss out on the new and improved Hot Docs Podcast Festival from October 12th to 15th at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema. The festival’s four-day lineup features ten acclaimed and adored podcasts, five insider panels, plus networking meet-and-greet style events.

 

In its first year, the Podcast Festival was a small pilot project to showcase some great storytellers and create unique experiences for our audience. We weren’t sure what to expect, but the audiences were huge and the feedback was tremendous. 
-Alan Black, Managing Director of Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema and Co-curator of Hot Docs Podcast Festival

 

It’s no surprise to us that the event was so popular — people love the intimacy of podcasts. Podcasts are most often enjoyed through earphones, which can make it feel as though the host or guest is speaking directly to you.

There are many great shows and panels to experience at this year’s festival. That’s the beauty and power of podcasting. Whatever you’re interested in, there is a program that seems like it was made just for you. As Alan Black puts it:

 

This year, I believe we’ve curated the greatest assemblage of podcasts and panels to ever hit this country, and we’re so excited for the opportunity to not only build on our own success, but to help facilitate opportunities for a community of audio creators that we had a small part in helping to create.

 

Watch ideas come to life before your eyes and ears at the second annual Hot Docs Podcast Festival. It’s a great opportunity to connect with the creators of your favourite shows and meet members of the community.

Nuit Blanche is back!

 

Take a nap, Toronto. You’ll need your rest because you are going to be up all night! The 12th annual Nuit Blanche art festival is back on September 30th from sunset to sunrise. If you’re unfamiliar with Nuit Blanche, it’s a free, city-wide celebration of contemporary art. It is produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with the city’s arts community. Put your regular routine aside and stay up to see what you can see as the city transforms overnight and becomes a series of art experiences and adventures. We spoke with Jeanne Holmes (Programming Supervisor for City Cultural Events/Arts & Culture Services/Economic Development & Culture) to get a clearer picture of what unexpected experiences we can expect at this year’s event.

So Jeanne, how will this year’s event differ from past years?

 

2017 will be the 12th annual Nuit Blanche Toronto and like many of the programming activities that have been presented by the City of Toronto throughout the year, the event will mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation. For the first time in our 12-year history Nuit Blanche will have an overarching curatorial theme: “Many Possible Futures” which invites participants to reflect on this major milestone in Canada’s collective history. Curators, artists, and cultural producers have been encouraged to look forward to the many possible futures of Canada in the development of their projects, bringing challenge, reflection, resilience and change to the forefront of the works created for this year’s event. The contributors to the 2017 edition of Nuit Blanche are placing both our differences and our solidarities at the very heart of their artistic discourse.

 

The curatorial focus of each of the four exhibitions this year reflect on timely and relevant ideas: protest and social change; revolution and resistance; difference and the unseen; and cultural endurance and visibility.

Wow!  “Many Possible Futures” certainly seems full of potential! How many artists are you expecting to participate this year?

 

Nuit Blanche 2017 features 90 projects which have been created by more than 350 local, national and international artists. We are excited about the incredible range of artistic practice represented featuring projects from a range of disciplines and mediums including large-scale sculpture and installation, video, film, sound, new media, social interventions and performance art to name just a few.

Sounds like an incredible night of spectacles and experiences! Why do you think it’s important to make art more accessible?

 

Nuit Blanche has a long history of presenting artworks with challenging themes, bringing important ideas expressed in beautiful and moving ways to the public at large. We have provided a platform for artists, partners and collaborators to address some of the most pressing issues currently facing our society through contemporary art, demonstrating the diversity and complexities of the world today.

 

Lowering barriers to art is an essential part of these activities.  Our efforts to bring work – created by some of the world’s most sought after artists – to the streets and sidewalks and parks of Toronto means we are taking projects directly to audiences rather than waiting for them to come to us. The democratic nature of the event allows audiences to engage with the work as they choose, to immerse themselves in the experience, inviting them to see their city in a whole new way. Additionally, many of our institutional partners like the AGO, the ROM, the Aga Khan Museum and others, open their doors free to the public during the all-night event. Bringing patrons through their doors, many for the first time.

 

We strive to bring new perspectives to the projects — both inside of galleries and museum and outside in the streets of the city — by working with hundreds of volunteers, who in addition to helping to manage projects also act as art guides for the public, offering insight and building understanding with folks who might be experiencing contemporary visual art for the first time.

Sounds like an incredibly accessible yet out of the ordinary experience! We can’t wait for it, thanks for speaking with us, Jeanne.

 

Let the everyday slip away and engage with your city as you’ve never seen it before with the 12th annual Nuit Blanche.

Traditionally, harvest fairs celebrate community and the abundance of food available in early fall. The Mount Pleasant Village Harvest Fair is no exception. It’s a giant annual neighbourhood celebration that attracts between three thousand and five thousand people each year. The event is presented by Meridian and hosted by the Mount Pleasant BIA. We spoke with Keven Menager, Administrator of the Mount Pleasant BIA, about the local event.

 

We asked Keven about who typically attends the event each year and what attracts them to it:

 

Primarily attendees are area residents.This is their neighbourhood! It’s our biggest event of the year, the one most people come out for. They come for the variety of activities, to get in touch with the [local] businesses, and to see what’s going on!

So what can residents expect at this year’s Fair? Quite a bit, actually! The day is packed with family-friendly fun! For the kids, there will be face painting, balloon sculpting, a caricaturist, a pumpkin carving contest, as well as arts and crafts tables! Stroll and shop at sidewalk sales featuring various local vendors and, of course, there will be special food offerings! You can even register to attend a flower workshop presented by local personality Frankie Flowers. It’s sponsored by Birch Bistro and Apricot Flowers, and it’s sure to help you celebrate the season!

 

Music lovers will appreciate the three live bands at the event. Expect performances from the three piece powerhouse; Pepper Shakers, as well as Gareth Berges, and Bruce Griffin.

Laugh till you cry at JFL42!

 

Laughter is the best medicine which is why we love JFL42! You can expect side-splitting laughs at this festival. This year’s event takes over various Toronto venues from September 21st to 30th. It features world-class headliners as well as 42 smaller, but hilarious, performers. You can see as many of them as you like, thanks to the festival’s pass system. We caught up with the festival’s spokesperson Charlene Coy to find out more about what’s in store this season!

 

Courtesy: Just For Laughs Festival

 

So Charlene, what makes JFL42 different from JFL?

 

The Just For Laugh comedy festival in Montreal has been going on for 35 years, and carries with it the status of being one of the biggest comedy festivals in the world. Toronto’s JFL42 has been around for only a fraction of that time, yet has been proving for years now that it can hold its own against its sister-festival down the 401. JFL42 allows comedy fans to make use of its incredibly versatile pass system. Pass holders can use one of their digital token credits to reserve a show one night, where once they check-in at the venue, their credit is immediately returned on their account so they can reserve the next show they want to see. Every time they check-in at a show, their credits go back, allowing them to keep curating their schedule for the entire fest.

Courtesy: Just For Laughs Festival

 

Wow, so the laughs are unlimited!? Who are some of the comedians that people are excited to see this year?

 

Every year offers an entirely new lineup of comedians ready to deliver the laughs across Toronto, and this year’s producers have delivered an incredible lineup that’ll reward fans who come back year after year. Whether it’s to catch headliners like Ali Wong, Mike Birbiglia and John Mulaney, or some of the illustrious 42 acts such as Jenny Slate, Jay Pharoah, the Lucas Bros or Colin Quinn.

Courtesy: Just For Laughs Festival

 

Comedy isn’t single format and not every format is to everyone’s taste. What styles of comedy can you expect to see at JFL42?

 

With JFL42 there a plethora of shows fit for everyone who likes a variety of comedy. Whether you want to take in the storytelling of Mike Birbiglia or Tom Segura, enjoy the unique stylings of Tim & Eric or My Favourite Murder; or utilize the pass system to its full extent to take-in night after night of comedy with W. Kamau Bell, Sasheer Zamata, Judah Friedlander or Kyle Kinane. There’s something for everyone.

Courtesy: Just For Laughs Festival

 

You can’t go wrong with variety! Your website describes the various venues for the festival as “intimate”. What kind of capacity do they accommodate? Are any of the venues notable?

 

JFL42 pops up all over Toronto, with some spectacular theatres, but also in the best comedy rooms that the city has to offer. Our headliners perform at both Sony Centre and the Winter Garden Theatre, offering thousands of comedy fans the chance to come in and see their favourites. From there, venues range from Queen Elizabeth Theatre to the Royal Cinema, over to the classic Toronto comedy hotspots of the Rivoli and The Comedy Bar. We call them intimate because no matter the size of the room, our venues serve to create an inclusive audience experience, wherein the emphasis is always on the comedy.

 

Everyone enjoys a good laugh. Give JFL42 the chance to make you laugh till you cry! How many shows can you see in 10 days? Don’t wait, get your passes or tickets, today!

Take in the magic of The Lights Fest

 

Toronto is a great place to live. There is always something new to see and do, and places to explore. If you’re looking to step outside of the everyday experience, The Lights Fest is making a stop in the GTA on its tour of North America, on Saturday, September 30th. What is The Lights Fest? It’s a unique “experience where thousands of friends and families gather to listen to live music, fill up on food trucks and light up life by sharing personal wishes, dreams and goals.” What that means is, at just the right moment, thousands of people light personalized lanterns and let them take flight into the night sky. It’s an awe-inspiring spectacle that must be experienced to be fully appreciated. Still not sure what to expect? We spoke with Kate Racker, spokesperson for The Lights Fest, to find out more.

Where was the first event and how did the event series grow into what it is today?

 

Our first Canadian event was in Regina, and our first event in the U.S was located in San Antonio, Texas. After our first 2 events we received a lot of positive feedback from our guests who attended the event. The emotional and heartwarming stories that were associated with our lantern launches inspired us to try and share those experiences with other people across the states and Canada.

 

Sounds quite uplifting! What is the event’s mission or focus?

 

Our Mission at The Lights Fest is to create a transformative experience for families and friends, enabling them to share their light with others.

Photo courtesy of The Lights Fest

 

That’s beautiful! How many lanterns get released at a single event?

 

Release of Lanterns varies depending on how many adult tickets were purchased, we have had 3000-8000 depending on the city and number of tickets purchased. We have a dedicated cleanup crew, waiting in the landing zone, whose focus is collecting lanterns after the event. All events are strategically located outside of populated areas where there is open space. We’ve engineered our lanterns for low flight and landing-site predictability. After the event, we have a large cleaning crew, picking up the lanterns. Our lanterns are 100% biodegradable, so in the rare chance that we miss one, they are designed to quickly disintegrate. Our “Leave No Trace Policy” allows us to make sure that our venues look the same after we leave as they did before we arrived.

 

That’s very responsible of you! Has this event happened in Toronto before? Where will this year’s event be held?

 

We have never had an event in Toronto but we are super excited to be coming there! Due to safety regulations, The Lights Festival is unable to hold events within city limits. To ensure we produce a safe and magical evening, Fire Marshals require our events to be held at venues with sufficient acreage and away from homes and businesses. That is why our venue is the Ohsweken Speedway 1987 Chiefswood Road, Ohsweken, ON N0A 1M0, Canada.

Photo courtesy of The Lights Fest

 

We noticed the event is family friendly — is it mostly families that attend or do solo adults and couples attend as well?

 

Our event is targeted for all age groups but we typically get families and young couples. At the perfect moment, everyone ignites their personalized sky lanterns with Tiki torches and lets them take flight. It creates a magical ambiance, where time slows down as your single flame rises with thousands of others.

 

If you’re looking to step outside of your everyday routine and step a little outside of the official boundaries of the city – Lights Fest may be one of those once in a lifetime experiences that you never forget. It’s less than a two hour trip from Toronto, but it may make for a fascinating journey! You can register online now.

Get outside this winter!

Get outside this winter!

The cold and dark days of winter are upon us. Winter isn’t going anywhere, so it’s up to you to  get outside this winter and make the most of it! Staying inside all day isn’t good for us. Too little sunlight can affect our mood, and even lead to symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). The good news is that it doesn’t take much effort — 1 hour of aerobic activity outdoors (even under a cloudy sky) has been shown to be as effective as 2.5 hours of light therapy. The Greenrock blog team has a few suggestions for how to enjoy the great outdoors this winter.

 

Hit the Ice

 

Make the most of icy winter conditions by strapping on your skates and hitting a local outdoor skating rink for some casual skating or a round of shinny (a pick up game of hockey). It’s a great way to get your heart pumping, while having some fun. Depending on how hard you go, you can break a sweat, even on the coldest days! There are two public skate pads at Hodgson Public School (276 Davisville Ave), within a 10 minute walk from home at Greenrock at Davisville Village.

 

Walk in the Winter Wonderland

 

Take a stroll through your Davisville Village neighbourhood to your favourite coffee shop,  or enjoy a quiet winter walk through the Mount Pleasant Cemetery. You can choose to continue on and take an easy, scenic hike along the Beltline Trail to the Evergreen Brickworks, it will take you about 45 minutes, one way, from your Greenrock at Davisville Village apartment. Refuel and freshen up at the cafe before heading back the way you came or hop on the number 28 bus from Evergreen to Davisville Station.

 

Hit the Slopes

 

If you’re craving a little more intensity this winter,  take a day trip to one of the nearby ski hills and hit the slopes this winter! Choose between Dagmar Resort, Lakeridge or Glen Eden — all of which are are within a one hour drive from your home at Greenrock at Davisville Village. No car? No problem! The North Toronto Ski Club offers bus pick up at 24 Merton Street (only minutes away) for chartered day trips to all the local hills – and it’s a great way to meet some new people with a common interest.

 

Go Play in the Snow

 

Remember the joy of winter by taking a break and playing in the snow! Build a snowman, have a snowball fight, make snow angels, go sledding — what you choose to do doesn’t really matter as long as you get outside and enjoy yourself this winter. Get back in touch with your inner child and remember how to be playful as an adult. You’ll be surprised how easy it is! Think about how good you will feel when you get back home to your apartment at Davisville Village and reward yourself with some hot chocolate and dry socks!

.

The Greenrock Property Management blog team wishes you a happy and healthy winter! We hope these ideas inspire a few of your own, and help you make the most of the season.
