Akin Creative: Intro to Pysanky Egg Decorating 

cal  Sun Apr 2
1-4pm

Akin Dufferin - 444 Dufferin St, Unit E

Learn traditional techniques to decorate your own festive egg! Eggs are decorated with designs in the technique known as "wax resist". Traditional symbols, designs and patterns are applied with melted beeswax using a tool called a kistka. Eggs are then dipped into successively darker dye baths. At the end of the process the beeswax is melted off to reveal a dazzling display of colour.

Most popularly known as a Ukrainian tradition this is actually common across many Eastern European countries and the practice has been around for thousands of years in celebration of Spring and fertility.

All materials are included. Please note that we will be working with: indelible dyes, raw eggs, and a candle flame.

About the instructor:

Natalie Waddell is a Toronto ceramic artist and a passionate ´Maker of Things´. Always exploring different materials and techniques she saw a photo of Pysanky eggs 7 years ago and has been making them ever since. Visit Natalie’s website at: http://www.claygirl.ca

Cities Reducing Poverty - When Business is Engaged - 3rd annual Poverty Reduction Summit

cal  Tue Apr 4 - Thu Apr 6
see website

Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmen´s | Hamilton, Canada

Ending poverty is everyone’s business. We welcome you to join the 3rd annual poverty reduction summit, hosted by Vibrant Communities Canada and the City of Hamilton on April 4-6, 2017 in Hamilton, Ontario where we will build on the work of our previous national summits in 2015 (Ottawa) and 2016 (Edmonton). In 2017 we will be expanding the conversation to examine the role of business and multi-sectoral approaches to poverty reduction from across Canada.

The Cities* Reducing Poverty: When Business Is Engaged summit will bring major business leaders together with community organizers, mayors and municipal staff, federal and provincial/territorial governments, Indigenous leaders, as well as funders, policy makers, and persons with lived experience with a focus on ending poverty.

Let´s take our collective understanding of multi-sectoral poverty reduction to the next level.

Join us as we work to:

Consider key roles that businesses play in poverty reduction collaboratives, from contributory to core leadership;

Learn how mayors and municipalities have been progressing with poverty reduction efforts since the 2016 Cities Reducing Poverty summit;

Discover innovations in poverty reduction work;

Identify evaluation strategies that help us learn and create accountability in our work; and

Explore some of the most promising practices across the country.

This is a time of real hope as citizens, cities, provinces/territories, the federal government and the business sector join together and support one another to significantly reduce poverty in Canada. Be a part of this monumental discussion. Meet allies, access new tools, share resources, and discover new practices with sector leaders from across the nation.

*We use the word cities mainly to differentiate local poverty reduction efforts from provincial and federal initiatives and strategies. Please note that the event will feature communities of all sizes and we have intentionally invited smaller and rural municipalities to attend in addition to big cities.

Learn essential art writing skills including approaches to writing and formatting your artist CV and artist statement before exploring a more creative approach to writing about art.

 

A workshop designed for artists, writers, and curators wishing to improve their practical art writing skills but also develop a more creative approach to writing about art, and/or writing for artists, and/or writing as artists. Writing is approached as a tool for deepening the connection between viewer, the written word, and the art ‘object’. As writers, we see and learn through our writing. If we can approach art-writing in a similar way to art-making, we will eliminate the possibility of producing tedious or unnecessarily didactic statements. Instead, we will learn to look at writing as a companion to art, one that enriches the experience of viewing and can even become an object to be viewed in and of itself.

‘The text you write must prove to me that it desires me’ – Roland Barthes

Akin Creative: Virtual Reality - Artist 360 Video Creation Project

cal  Tue Apr 25
6:30-9:30pm

Akin Lansdowne - 87 Wade Ave

Virtual Reality (VR) is a fast-developing technology with the potential to change the way entertainment, communication and recreation are experienced. Artists need the opportunity to create and experience the medium in a thoughtful, creative and safe environment.

The more VR enters our home, the more important that creative people learn to decipher how it remains a ´mediated reality´. Photography was once hailed as The Truth because it replicated what was in front of the lens, but with time, the public came to understand how it could be manipulated, not only through adding or removing elements in Photoshop, but by choosing, when shooting what goes inside and outside the frame. The same can be said about VR or 360 video, even though you´re showing the entire scene, you´re selecting a time and a place, and sequencing those scenes in an order that conveys a certain message.

This workshop will teach you how to create 360 videos, to think about the space you are documenting and learn about site-specific art work. As artists you will create a hand crafted site-specific installation together. Once the piece is finalized, it will be capture with a 360 camera. A facilitator will assist participants with the technical requirements. The final product will be sent to the students to be viewed on a VR viewer, such as Google Cardboard.

No experience necessary - all materials provided for the workshop. Please note that all students will be provided with the final digital file of the 360 video but not with a viewing device. https://vr.google.com/intl/en_ca/cardboard/get-cardboard/

About the instructor:

Elizabeth Basskin is an artist, educator and filmmaker. She studied video, graphic design and painting at OCAD University, where she created her first stop motion animation. Through this experience she developed a passion for the medium and was inspired both to make animations and to teach film making to children. Over the past five years Elizabeth has developed her own stop motion animation and filmmaking animation workshops for children. In 2012 she earned a Bachelors of Education at York University and has taught art, filmmaking and graphic design to students in private and public schools throughout the city. Wishing to continue learning and experiment with new things, she decided to continue her education with the Masters in Digital Media program at Ryerson.

Elizabeth is extremely enthusiastic about digital media because it is a driving face that is altering the

There are so many different ways to lend a helping hand – to ourselves, to our families, to our friends and to our communities.
