Tickets on Sale

It’s been a long time since I wrote a post. There is so much I wanted to share, but things have been moving fast and I had to keep up.

Here’s the short of it: we have a venue, we have Lemon Bucket, we have over 30 installations, the party will help Street Haven at the Crossroads women emergency shelter with funds and volunteers, we actually have one of our artists, Luisa Ayala, working with women at the shelter who will make an installation for the party, the art will live on for a week at Arstcape Youngplace and some of it will be taken by the shelter, we started tickets sale and the first two tickets were bought within five minutes.

Card-yard activities: TIMEANDDESIRE

Yes I know I have been fairly silent about Card-yard, it’s because I got so busy with figuring out a way to create temporary pavilions out of cardboard tubes!

But we have now confirmed over 10 different activities for Card-yard at BIG on Bloor (which will inhabit these pavilions) and I’d like to introduce some of them on the blog.

So without further ado, I give you TIMEANDDESIRE!
