Those of you who have so much energy that you’re bouncing off the walls will want to pay attention to this very appropriate, albeit quite literal event suggestion. Women’s Parkour Jam is two days of activities geared towards those who enjoy the sport, or want to learn more about it. Discover a new way of traversing our city, with both indoor and outdoor demonstrations and workshops.
The arts are alive and well in Parkdale, and this weekend they’re spilling into the streets and taking over as many spaces as possible! Why? The Lab Cab Festival is on, bringing two full days of theatre, dance, music, film, crafts, comedy, and visual art to Queen West. Aiming to provide a safe creative space, the festival connects local experienced and amateur artists to their community, while encouraging them to experiment with their crafts.
If you think that watching an artist at work is a treat, imagine what it would be like to see Canada’s 20 best painters simultaneously creating masterpieces before your very eyes. That’s exactly what you’ll get at the Art Battle National Championships—one room, and 20 artists creating a new piece of work in hopes of securing the title of our country’s best live painter. All creations will be available for purchase via silent auction after the competition.
