The 3rd Not-So-Annual HARVEST Festival in Thorncliffe Park
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2015 2PM–7:30PM
R.V. BURGESS PARK, 46 THORNCLIFFE PARK DRIVE
All events are Free!
The 3rd HARVEST FESTIVAL will feature unique, only-in-Toronto music, harvest-themed Story Circles, harvest foods, drumming, creative workshops and a special Women’s Cultural Café created as a collaboration between TAG, ERA Architects and Diasporic Genius.
The HARVEST Festival features new events growing out of exciting new partnerships. The Women’s Café is being conceived and created by a group of women who have been participating in DG programs over the last three years and have come together as the Thorncliffe Action Group to undertake this first project. Joining them are a group from visionary architecture firm ERA Architects (who brought the Tower Renewal project into the city-building conversation). Together they will create a pop-up structure made of the simplest materials, as an exercise in imaginative space transformation. This first-step, creative collaboration in space transformation as a container for imaginative food creation will connect to both themes of Harvest and neighbourhood development, themes that will resonate across the rest of the activities at the Harvest Festival: stories of indigenous, early settler and new Canadian foods; art-making workshops; and professional and community performance.
