Harvest Wednesdays: Taste of Parkdale at Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. W., Toronto
Harvest Wednesdays sparks conversations about Community Shared Agriculture, eating locally for global change, bridging the gap between urban and rural and of course, enjoying seasonal Ontario produce, picked from the land just the day before. You're invited to our beloved Harvest Wednesday's Sip and Savour event in the Gallery, featuring tastings from 15+ local producers! With sampling stations set up around the second floor gallery space, you can sip and savour local wines, meats, cheeses and specialty foods along with Hors D’oeuvres prepared by the Gladstone’s executive Chef Katie Venables Lloyd. In the spirit of Harvest Wednesdays, this Sip and Savour connects urbanites with rural producers by incorporating produce from Chick-a-biddy Acres with the restaurants and producers from our own backyard: Parkdale! Parkdale is a rich and culturally diverse neighbourhood with equally diverse food offerings. From Tibetan treats to artisanal jams to breweries that are as local as it gets, there is something for everyone! We’ve invited some of our West End faves to showcase the multifaceted tastes of our beloved neighbourhood, all the while incorporating produce from Sherry’s farm. Let’s bridge the gap between urban and rural. Come hungry! West End Food Co-Op will speak at the event. They are a not-for-profit cooperative in Parkdale that seeks to provide viable food security that uniquely meets the needs of Toronto's west end food communities.

Progress of Place: Black on Earth Film Series - Programme 2 at Art Gallery of Ontario, 317 Dundas St. W, Toronto
Programmed by Jacqueline Najuma Stewart in conjunction with the exhibition Theaster Gates: How to Build a House Museum, Progress of Place: Black on Earth Film Series takes up questions about the Progress of the Race, with an emphasis on the role of place in the ongoing quest for Black freedom. The films consider the histories of Black places, and the place of Black histories, in the necessary imaginative work toward building better Black futures. All screenings take place in Jackman Hall at 7pm. Afronauts (Frances Bodomo, 2014; 13m) Inspired by true events, Afronauts tells an alternative history of the 1960s Space Race, as the Zambian space program prepares to blast 17-year-old Matha to the moon in its makeshift Bantu-7 Rocket. Destination: Planet Negro (Kevin Willmott, 2013; 98m) In this parody of classic sci-fi B-movies, a group of pre-war Black intellectuals explores colonizing Mars, but land instead in an equally alienating 21st century America. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Theaster Gates: How to Build a House Museum

Stranger Things have happened at the Gladstone. Expect the unexpected at our 80s Sci-Fi themed Nuit Blanche party. Come see some extraordinary installation art and lighting displays, projections, and performances in the Gladstone Ballroom (aka Joyce's living room). Make your way into The Fort (BYO Hazmat Suit), catch a glimpse of the upside-down, and dance the night away to kick-ass 80s rock music. This is a FREE all night party, so come early and stay late! But first, check out the Gladstone Hotel's Nuit Blanche Art Showcase upstairs: Fly By Night. Experience a temporary installation focusing on eight projects, ephemeral performance and installations in the hotel’s Second Floor Gallery + Studios.

World Music Series: Huun Huur Tu at Aga Khan Museum, 77 Wyndford Drive, Toronto
Launched in early 2016, our World Music Series continues this season with rhythms and sounds rooted in the 20th and 21st centuries. Venture into Central Asia and South-eastern Europe as we welcome back throat-singer Radik Tyulyush, and introduce a Turkish trio that thrives on improvisation. Credited with single-handedly introducing the outside world to the boundless wealth of Tuvan traditions, Huun Huur Tu has spent decades honing overtone singing, instrumental approaches, and the vibrant songs of Central Siberia’s Altai Mountains. Drawing subtly from both 20th-century composers and the contemporary palette of electronica, Huun Huur Tu transform ancient songs into to ethereal, universal music accompanied by lively acoustic compositions.

Why The @#&! Do You Paint? Go Figure at Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. W., Toronto
October 4th – November 28nd, 2016 OPENING RECEPTION October 20, 7-10pm | 2nd floor Gallery The Gladstone Hotel is proud to announce the 2nd annual Why the @#&! Do you Paint?: Go Figure; Gladstone’s Annual Painting Show curated by Spencer J Harrison and Lukus Toane. Drawing from the human form is an act of observation and an action that creates human empathy. Utilizing the figure as a subject matter is where some of the earliest human marks were made. Stories were told, histories were recorded, and the obsession with observing the human form began. Although the history of figurative work is an extensive questioning as to whom we are observing, recording, and rendering, this exhibition moves this questioning towards the contemporary discourse of inclusion. Historically, figurative painting exhibitions are an array of images depicting privileged bodies painted by privileged bodies. For the second annual Gladstone Why the @#&! Do You Paint? exhibition showcases paintings which consider the voices and bodies left out of this conversation as well as some of the bodies who traditionally appear. For the 2nd annual#WTFDYP subtitled Go Figure, features 37 figurative paintings with the intention of ‘figuring out’ a reflective dialog about perceptions about the body.

Why The @#&! Do You Paint? Go Figure at Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. W., Toronto
October 4th – November 28nd, 2016 OPENING RECEPTION October 20, 7-10pm | 2nd floor Gallery The Gladstone Hotel is proud to announce the 2nd annual Why the @#&! Do you Paint?: Go Figure; Gladstone’s Annual Painting Show curated by Spencer J Harrison and Lukus Toane. Drawing from the human form is an act of observation and an action that creates human empathy. Utilizing the figure as a subject matter is where some of the earliest human marks were made. Stories were told, histories were recorded, and the obsession with observing the human form began. Although the history of figurative work is an extensive questioning as to whom we are observing, recording, and rendering, this exhibition moves this questioning towards the contemporary discourse of inclusion. Historically, figurative painting exhibitions are an array of images depicting privileged bodies painted by privileged bodies. For the second annual Gladstone Why the @#&! Do You Paint? exhibition showcases paintings which consider the voices and bodies left out of this conversation as well as some of the bodies who traditionally appear. For the 2nd annual#WTFDYP subtitled Go Figure, features 37 figurative paintings with the intention of ‘figuring out’ a reflective dialog about perceptions about the body.

Robots v. Unicorns: "Event Horizon" at The Royal Cinema, 608 College St., Toronto
Years after losing contact with the ship “Event Horizon” when it slipped into deep space in a black hole, it finally reappears near Neptune, but this time with something, or someone else on board. Horrifying recordings are recovered, with unidentified screaming intermingled with eerie Latin phrasing, making it initially appear as though the crew had killed one another. A recovery mission is sent to the ship, led by Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne) and Dr. Weir (Sam Neill), and almost immediately after arriving on deck, terrible hallucinations are experienced, targeting each individual fear, and maximizing on each person’s pain and loss to create hideous and ghastly visions of Hell.

Cat People (1942) with Miss Paige at The Royal Cinema, 608 College St., Toronto
Break out the catnip and the antiseptic, because this kitty is ready to pounce! Just in time for Halloween LADIES of BURLESQUE brings you CAT PEOPLE, the B-movie horror masterpiece that hugely influenced all monster and slasher movies to come. Featuring a feline-infused performance from series favourite Paige La Pearl, this screening guarantees to frighten AND entice. Luscious French siren Simone Simon is Irena Dubrovna, a Serbian immigrant working as a fashion designer in Manhattan. Convinced that she is inflicted with her homeland’s Cat Woman curse, which foretells that she will transform into a vicious panther and devour her suitor upon sexual arousal, Irena’s marriage to Kent Smith (Oliver Reed) is understandably compromised by her inability to permit any marital friskiness. Yearning for physical affection, her husband seeks solace in the affections of his devoted secretary Alice (Jane Randolph)—a betrayal that enrages Irena, provoking her to stalk and claw her female rival to pieces. Depicting the psychological impact on female sexuality, CAT PEOPLE was ahead of its game in its frankness and raw portrayal of sexual desire. $10 advance online/$12 at the door

Lisa LeBlanc at The Rivoli, 334 Queen St. W., Toronto
New Brunswick native Lisa LeBlanc’s irresistible charm lies in her unique “folk-trash” style, which has garnered critical acclaim and awards in Quebec, France and Belgium, 140,000 record sales on two continents, and a JUNO nomination and platinum sales for her self-titled 2012 debut. The bilingual banjo-wielding folk rocker returns to Toronto in the wake of the release of her third album – her first primarily English-language record – Why You Wanna Leave, Runaway Queen?, which inspired by old-time jams, cajun and bluegrass. As we’ve seen in previous presentations at the Drake Underground, and as part of Live at Massey Hall when she appeared alongside Spirit of the West, LeBlanc’s live shows are high-energy adventures through not only deep-cut folk tunes and the occasional heavy metal interpretation, but a collection of Americana-by-way-of-Acadia original material. $15 General Admission 19+ Tickets:  http://www.masseyhall.com/eventdetail/LisaLeBlanc2016

Scarves and Storytelling 2.0: Queer and Trans Youth Arts Programme at The 519 Community Centre, 519 Church St. Toronto
Let's work with symbols. Try to think of a story, an idea, something from your background or community, something unique to your lives. Simplify that story as much as possible until you have only the essential details. Then the real work begins. In this workshop, we will be going over some history of textiles and having the chance to develop another set of related skills. Participants will be asked to write a story they would like to share and then draw symbols or images that relate to that story. We will then convert those images onto linoleum for stamp making, which we will use to decorate a length of fabric. Finally, we will hand embroider the edges to finish them off and maybe incorporate more sewing into the project itself. This workshop is open to kids ages 12-16.

Why The @#&! Do You Paint? Go Figure at Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. W., Toronto
October 4th – November 28nd, 2016 OPENING RECEPTION October 20, 7-10pm | 2nd floor Gallery The Gladstone Hotel is proud to announce the 2nd annual Why the @#&! Do you Paint?: Go Figure; Gladstone’s Annual Painting Show curated by Spencer J Harrison and Lukus Toane. Drawing from the human form is an act of observation and an action that creates human empathy. Utilizing the figure as a subject matter is where some of the earliest human marks were made. Stories were told, histories were recorded, and the obsession with observing the human form began. Although the history of figurative work is an extensive questioning as to whom we are observing, recording, and rendering, this exhibition moves this questioning towards the contemporary discourse of inclusion. Historically, figurative painting exhibitions are an array of images depicting privileged bodies painted by privileged bodies. For the second annual Gladstone Why the @#&! Do You Paint? exhibition showcases paintings which consider the voices and bodies left out of this conversation as well as some of the bodies who traditionally appear. For the 2nd annual#WTFDYP subtitled Go Figure, features 37 figurative paintings with the intention of ‘figuring out’ a reflective dialog about perceptions about the body.

The Healing Art of Astrology: Queer and Trans Youth Arts Programme at The 519 Community Centre, 519 Church St. Toronto
This event is open to kids ages 12-15. This workshop runs over 6 weeks from 10:00 am - 12:00 on Saturdays. In this series, we'll explore the basics of Astrology including zodiac signs, planets, how to read and interpret Astrological birth charts, as well as how to apply this information to our own lives in a fun, practical and exciting way. We all live in a world that limits us from being our full, bright, weird, unique and true selves all the time. Some of us struggle against boxes and limitations of who others expect we should be, versus who we really are. Astrology is a language that, along with being entertaining, is also deeply healing and validating because it can help us break out of boxes, connect to ourselves and shine our brightest. We'll include arts-based activities like creative writing, craft-making, dance/movement and/or theatre, so that we have the opportunity to create things out of what we learn and share our stories with one another.

The festival will offer 400+ beers and ciders served for 3 days with over 10,000 attendees. Cask Days celebrates the love for cask ale: unpasteurized, unfiltered and naturally carbonated beer that is served direct from a cask barrel. The festival welcomes back breweries and cider producers from across Canada and the United States. This year, the state of Oregon has been chosen to be the brewery feature presented in conjunction with Gigantic Brewing (Portland, Oregon). There will be a variety of 50 beers and ciders available from Oregon State that are available for the first time in Ontario. From its humble beginnings on the patio of Bar Volo in 2005 with 22 casks, 18 breweries and 130 attendees, Cask Days has grown to be “the most exciting beer event in Toronto” according to Stephen Beaumont, author of World Atlas of Beer. October 21 - 23

Documentary Premiere: The Bishop Who Ate His Boots at Bata Shoe Museum, 327 Bloor St. W., Toronto
Join us for the premiere of this extraordinary documentary about the work of Bishop Isaac Stringer, an Anglican missionary who was stationed in the Arctic in the early 20th century as filmed by his grandson cinematographer Richard Stringer. A labour of love and a personal quest to learn more about his grandfather, Stringer documented the Bishop’s treacherous journey to the north and his efforts to convert the Inuit to Christianity. Unfortunately, Stringer passed away before completing the film which was later finished by his many friends and colleagues. Family friend Gail Singer will be on hand to introduce the film and a tour of "Art & Innovation: Traditional Arctic Footwear from the Bata Shoe Museum Collection" will complete the afternoon. 1 pm SOLD OUT 3 pm 5 pm Includes a wine and cheese reception. Limited space | $15 per person | Tickets can be purchased below or by calling 416.979.7799 x445
