Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Hart House, University of Toronto





Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Hart House, University of Toronto: "The conference This is Paradise: Art and Artists in Toronto will explore the relationship between the urban context and local artistic cultures in Canada's largest city. Convening at the University of Toronto from May 28 to 31st, the conference includes over 75 presenters, including artists, critics, curators and scholars from across a diversity of disciplines, to focus on the ecology and conditions of emergence of the visual arts in Toronto.



Presentations will explore a range of themes: the "absence" of history, and the relationship between Toronto and other urban centres; the collective impulse in local artistic scenes, and the current pressures of "creative city" paradigms; case-studies of particular places and locales significant in the cultural ecology, as well as considerations of discourses including diaspora studies, urbanism, queer studies and feminism, and of the conditions of specific media such as DIY publishing, independent film and artists' video.



The conference will culminate with roundtable conversations about the state of art institutions in Toronto - past, present and future.

This is Paradise: Art and Artists in Toronto is presented by the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and the University of Toronto Art Centre.

Tickets available from the UofTTix Box Office, online, by phone, or in person. More information here. "

Sampradaya Dance Creations celebrates 25th Anniversary with world premiere of nirantara - beyond space and time

Choreography by Lata Pada - with special guest musicians Sikkil Gurucharan and Anil Srinivasan from India and Aruna Narayan Kalle and S. Surenthar from Toronto -
 
TORONTO (May 12, 2015) - Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Sampradaya Dance Creations proudly presents nirantara - beyond space and time, a compelling contemporary new work for six dancers and four musicians choreographed by legendary dance artist and Sampradaya Artistic Director, Lata Pada. This visually and aurally powerful bharatanatyam-based world premiere explores worlds known and unknown and runs May 21-23 at Harbourfront Centre's Fleck Dance Theatre as part of NextSteps.

Ms Pada, a pioneer at the forefront of contemporary South-Asian dance in Canada, pushes boundaries in this cutting-edge piece that showcases three special guest dancers from India along with three stunning Toronto dancers.
 
The dancers perform to live music composed and performed by two of India's award-winning and transformative musicians: the duo of classical pianist/composer Anil Srinivasan and Carnatic vocalistSikkil Gurucharan. The presence of live piano music in a bharatanatyam-based work is particularly innovative, and Srinivasan and Gurucharan have been making waves in India for their novel approach to musical forms for a new direction in global music. They will be joined by two Toronto musicians:  acclaimed sarangi artist Aruna Narayan Kalle and talented percussionist S. Surenthar.

Two day Healthcare Summit to Build Bridges between Canada and India Staff Reporter, Toronto

A two-day Healthcare Summit organized by the Canada India Foundation (CIF) is being organized to build bridges between Canada and India.  This is the fifth theme based Summit organized by CIF as part of the organization’s ongoing effort to keep this dialog alive, and increase relations between the two countries.

 

It is important to keep the dialogue going says Dr V I Lakshmanan, Chairman CIF  and co-chair, Healthcare Summit.  At the end of the day it is people to people contact that makes things happen, he states.  

 

“Through the Summit, we aim to connect senior people and decision makers in the field of Healthcare from both countries. We will also be arranging one on one meetings with key delegates such as Dr. Rahul Reddy, Senior Vice President, Apollo Hospitals and Dr P Namperumalsamy, Chairman of Aravind Eye Hospital, Madurai.”

 

Founded eight years ago, CIF’s mandate is to work on public policy and advocacy and enhance relationship between Canada and India.

 

The two-day summit to be held on May 19 and 20 at the OMNI King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto will have over 70 speakers who will address diverse health issues pertaining to South Asians, wellness and alternative care, rehabilitation, generic drugs and research collaboration.

 

“Generic drugs is a major topic at the Summit this year. We wanted to shed some focus on it as it a topic relevant to both Governments.

 

“Canada has universal care but the population is only 35 million. On the other hand, there is India with a population of 1.2 billion and a thriving middle class.  Digital health is becoming a major issue and e-health is an opportunity for Indian companies to come and work with Canadian companies and the Canadian government.

 

According to Dr. Lakshmanan, the Summit will help to achieve quality and efficiency.

 

“Today the world is a global village, and it is all about what the civil society can do to bring people together, understand the challenges and see if there is synergy. As CIF, we will be putting together a report with a summary of all the discussions and deliberations that took place during the Summit and will be presenting the report to Governments of both countries.

 

“In terms of what the delegates themselves have – this is an opportunity for them to talk and network with senior people in the industry in both India and Canada and discuss opportunities in a wide range of areas that are primarily healthcare related.”

Releasing 10,000 baby Chinook Salmon in Port Credit Village Marina on 6th May 2015."It won't look like much when we do it. We have been raising them in a small pen since April 11. All we'll do is flip the pen oven. During the past four weeks these salmon have doubled in size and 'imprinted' on the river. For now, they will be eating a ton of midges (which is awesome!). Soon they will be eating alewife, a herring-like invasive species that's plentiful in Lake Ontario. In about three years, they will return home to the Credit River to spawn as 25 to 35 pound adults. We want to thank City staff at the marina who volunteer many hours after work and on weekends to support this community project." - Brian Lambie.
