A reminder to everyone that the first ever Small Press and Literary Festival takes place this coming Saturday, December 14th at the Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West.

Over 70 vendors of books, zines, comics, indie magazines, chapbook and paper goods.

The market runs from 10:30am - 4:30pm, and admission is $5 with 40% of proceeds going to Parkdale Project Read, a local adult literacy organization.

We'll also be part of a local artisan "crawl" that includes the Vendor Queens pop-up and City of Craft, which are both just a few blocks away at Queen West and Dovercourt.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

















Play hooky with Anomaly and Oasis Skateboard Factory on December 11th





















Anomaly is incredibly excited to kick off our partnership with Oasis Skateboard Factory, an award-winning alternative high school that uses art and culture to develop the next generation of artists and brand builders.

So forge a note from your mom. Dust off your old skate deck. It’s time to play hooky. We’re launching with a celebration of skate and street culture that will skin the knees of your brain with sheer awesomeness.

OSF x AGO

During our programming year 2012-2013 the Art Gallery of Ontario & Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) collaborated on a series of free skateboard building workshops led by and for youth. OSF leadership students developed leadership and teaching skills through teaching participants how to build their own skateboards from scratch, and how to deck it out with their original designs! OSF x AGO workshops run through the AGO's Free After Three workshops every Wednesday from 4-6pm until June 5, 2013.

The Baitshop presents…
OASIS SKATEBOARD FACTORY POP-UP SHOP 
(Toronto Design Offsite Festival)
Opening Party: Friday, January 25, 7:00 - 9:00 PM

Come out and support the Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF), Toronto’s innovative and award-winning skateboard design and street art focused alternative high school reengagement program! At OSF students earn all their credits by running an entrepreneurial business where they learn hands-on to build skateboards, design original custom graphics, work with local artists and community partners, market and display their work and receive financial remuneration.

The OSF POP-UP SHOP is the culminating project in a business course developed by OSF in partnership with The Baitshop, Toronto’s premiere screen-printing/skate shop and gallery. The OSF/Baitshop Business Program is designed to help youth earn credits and develop transferable creative, employment and entrepreneurial skills.

At the opening party students will be selling their hand-made skateboards and longbords with custom graphics, as well as having a sample sale of their street wear logo T-shirts and other products to launch their personal company brands. To give back to the community, a portion of the sales of Oasis Skateboard Factory merchandise will be donated to a local charity. This free public event, catered by Glory Hole Doughnuts, is presented by The Baitshop as part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival and will feature OSF design collaborations with Local Designers, Roarockit Skateboard Company, Longboard Living and Concrete Wave Magazine.
