CreativeUTO is a socially conscious incubator of creative thinkers. We are launching the inaugural issue of Symposium, a print anthology, and video exhibit.

We see, too, that there are deep inequalities that undermine our core values and beliefs.

#Melanin – Michael Bole, a Creative Director at Gallery 1017

 

Beauty Reflections

Last year I was invited to an art show by one of the artists exhibiting at The Annex Art Party 6. Eva Frydrych has been supportive of our initiative from the start with valuable input that helped grow the community.

One of her greater contributions was the invite to Beauty Reflection; this introduced me to an art gallery on 1017 Dupont. That’s where I met Adrian, the owner. We started talking about several topics including Toronto, Toronto art, and our culture.

That's when I pitched the idea.

Melanin - Celebrating over 600 years of Black History! We've been working on making it happen ever since. We continued our discussions and since then I've explained the concept behind Creative Unicorns of Toronto and that it’s a system designed for artists to share time and resources, collaborate together and work on in-house or 3rd party projects. From The Annex Art Party 6, Beauty Reflections, to now this makes Melanin a perfect platform to collaborate and use data from this event to continue creating content.

 

Creative Director

I will take on the role of Creative Director for these projects and I’m bringing a collaborative incubator that includes Jessica Singh as Copy Editor, another Business Developer Shorty Bryenton and Salomeh Ahmadi as our Copywriter. 

As a Creative Director with an eye for Business Development and a project management background, I will oversee the project and work closely with creators to make the best version of their vision come to life

The Melanin art Exhibits + Programs

Content will be broken down into programs and art exhibits. Art exhibits set the mood for a week or two animating about 1,000 Sq ft of wall space with art; presenting new themes that make statements relevant to our times. We're also developing programs like free-flowing dance, art classes, guided meditation, and potluck dinners.

12 Outdoor Art Events to Take Advantage of for Summer 2019

12 Art Events to Take Advantage of for Summer 2019

The summer in Toronto started a bit late. However, the events will be scheduled as planned, and outdoors.

Overall, Toronto is flourishing with art, performances and family gatherings. We had an increase in art investment back in 2013 to $25 per capita after significant advocacy. (FYI Ottawa spends $28 per capita on arts funding; Calgary, $42; Vancouver, $47; and Montreal, $55; including overlooking the arts in the 2018 federal budget).

In addition, the 2018 economic impacts of arts in the province of Ontario documented by Ontario Arts Council, where "arts and culture products represent $25.7 billion or 3.5% of the province's gross domestic product (GDP) and over 269,000 jobs." This is no easy feat. We all enjoy the arts, all the more reason to continue investing and supporting the arts in the public. 

 

 

Arts Investment Requires a Dedicated Audience

While there are many events throughout the city, below is a list of some of the bigger events so you can plan your summer (and your spending) accordingly.

 

  • Sundays: Kensington Market and their pedestrian last Sundays of each month until October 27th, 2019.
  • Sundays: Evergreen Brickworks and their Sunday Artisan Market until November.
  • July 5 – 7:  Beaches Jazz Festival  a block party with jazz that runs from Friday to Sunday.
  • July 7: - AfroFest at Woodbine Park, African music festival
  • July 3 – 14: Fringe Festival (theatre) showcasing 150+ productions every July at 30+ venues around downtown Toronto, with affordable ticket prices.
  • July 12 – 14: Toronto Outdoor Art Fair art talks, tours, installations, performances, and family fun, an art fair with significant foot traffic.
  • July 27: Black Owned Unity Black-Owned Summer Market, a social enterprise that was started to unite the black community around the goal of economic development.
  • Aug. 17: Rasta Fest music, dance, ancestral drumming, arts/crafts market place, ital food cuisine, children/youth activities, writers’ corner and a live concert
  • Aug. 17 – 18: Chinatown Festival the theme this year is the 12 Chinese Zodiac; various cultural performances on two stages with about 80 vendors to showcase Asian culture
  • Aug. 30 – Sept. 2: Artfest Toronto at the Distillery Labour Day Weekend, focuses on fine art and craft with a splash of gourmet food, with a curated selection of 80 artists.
  • Sept 6 – Sept 8: Cabbagetown Art and Crafts, a community-based arts and crafts sale.
  • Sept 14 – 15: Danforth East Art Fair a free event held in East Lynn Park, located on the south side of the Danforth between Coxwell and Woodbine, dozens of art vendors.

About The Annex Art Party

 
We are looking to collaborate with forward-thinking corporations to create sponsorship opportunities that align with their strategic goals and messages. 
 
A bit about our organization. We are a socially conscious incubator that advances profit-sharing creative projects. We support, educate, and develop entrepreneurs, coders, artists, creators, and developers from all walks of life. We drive forward projects through SMARTER collaboration from the foundation up. But most importantly, we build and multiply spaces for creators to come together to combat the all too common and interconnected epidemics of isolation, mental health, and homelessness in the creative community.
 

 

We look forward to exploring how your company’s support for our exhibitions and projects (both financially and in-kind) can help engage audiences.
 

In return we have designed a marketing campaign that will reach over: 

  • 3 million people in the downtown core through a guerrilla marketing strategy
     
  • Includes a street team (of Unicorns in Unicorn masks) who raises awareness for our organizations
  • By handing out a postcard with envelopes promoting our individual companies
  • A poster campaign that targets the busiest intersections along Bathurst (the street where the event will be)
  • This campaign also includes social media awareness (we will take lots of video and pictures)
  • Reach out to a community of artists on social media and in-person 
  • Collaborating on an art installation for change
  • and be a judge to help vote for the Winter Unicorn Awards at the event
  • Your logos will be represented at the event, all marketing material including social media
