Light Grows the Tree

Sat. 31 Aug, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 23 Nov, 2019 4:00 pm

Aug. 31 to Nov. 23 — Light Grows the Tree. Documenting a community of Black artists, writers, curators and collectors in Toronto. Taken by four photographers over two months, these portraits do the work of making the Black arts community visible. The stakes of Black culture in Canada are high. Systemic racism in the form of violence and exclusion tears at the fabric of our many communities. Through visual arts we create new worlds and make sense of our histories, we are emboldened to confront the prerogatives of a multiculturalism that eclipses our integral place in the nation. There is such rich nuance to Blackness here: it is no single thing. Our endeavours are held in the memories of several generations of folks who have shaped the Black arts scene through their various contributions. Going into the future we need to know of each other’s existence. Just as a tree needs light to grow, this community requires attention to focus and develop. In this first chapter, Light Grows The Tree begins the process of acknowledging those who have been the life force of Black arts in Toronto.”

York Simcoe Nature Club - October Nature Walk

Wed. 23 Oct, 2019 9:30 am

Our nature walk for this month is on Wednesday October 23.

Our walk will take us through the Pangman Springs Conservation Area which is a 100 hectare property on the Oak Ridges Moraine. It contains a mature ecosystem including wetlands and hardwood forest. The trail has some steep sections and footing can be tricky.

Since the trail is one way we will walk the 1.2 km in and the same back out for a length of 2.4 km.

We will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot which is on the west side of Kennedy Road about  0.5 km south of St. John's Sideroad and 1.5 km north of Aurora Road.

Do not stop at the parking area for the Porritt Tract of the York Regional Forest which is just north of Aurora Road.

For those who are planning on attending the nature walk this Wednesday please note that there is no sign designating the Pangman Springs Conservation Area. The parking area is adjacent to Kennedy Road on the west side and will accommodate about 10 cars. If you are travelling south on Kennedy from St. John's Sideroad, there is a yellow 40 km/hr speed sign on a pole at the entrance to the parking area. However if you are travelling north on Kennedy there is nothing to identify the parking area. You need to watch carefully for the parking area. If you reach St. John's Sideroad you have obviously gone too far. The York Regional Forest Porritt Tract is signed but that is not where our walk is.

The weather forecast for Wednesday looks good. We hope that you can join us.

This walk is a rain or shine event and no sign up is necessary. We hope that you can join us for this event.

Light Grows the Tree

Sat. 31 Aug, 2019 10:00 am - Sat. 23 Nov, 2019 4:00 pm

Aug. 31 to Nov. 23 — Light Grows the Tree. Documenting a community of Black artists, writers, curators and collectors in Toronto. Taken by four photographers over two months, these portraits do the work of making the Black arts community visible. The stakes of Black culture in Canada are high. Systemic racism in the form of violence and exclusion tears at the fabric of our many communities. Through visual arts we create new worlds and make sense of our histories, we are emboldened to confront the prerogatives of a multiculturalism that eclipses our integral place in the nation. There is such rich nuance to Blackness here: it is no single thing. Our endeavours are held in the memories of several generations of folks who have shaped the Black arts scene through their various contributions. Going into the future we need to know of each other’s existence. Just as a tree needs light to grow, this community requires attention to focus and develop. In this first chapter, Light Grows The Tree begins the process of acknowledging those who have been the life force of Black arts in Toronto.”
