11th November

In preparation for the launch of its second year, interviews for the EAST Music Collective took place over three weeks in October. We were thrilled to witness the talents and cultural wealth of our local youth, and would like to thank everyone for their interest in the program and for helping to spread the word about it.

After an intensive process of auditions and difficult decisions, our EAST panel was pleased to have settled on the group of young musicians and vocalists who will be offered a place in the program to form the 2013-14 Music Collective. On November 13, these young artists will receive their orientation to roll them into the new year of the EAST program.

30th October

The Scarborough Seniors Write (SSW) program is now fully underway! We’ve had several tremendous workshops so far, thanks to our incredible instructor David Bester and Scarborough’s amazing seniors. The Kennedy/Eglinton Library has been an fantastic partner, allowing us to use their space as the centre for the program activities.

Their meeting room has had a full house for the past few weeks, with writers sharing stories based on prompts provided by David during the classes. For one of the exercises, the participants were given the same challenge that Ernest Hemingway was rumoured to have been given by his peers: write a story in six words. Exercises like these have gotten the creative juices flowing! The talent we’ve seen so far promises very exciting finished work by the end of the program.

Starting in January, we’ll be moving to the digital component of … Read More »
