FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WOMENS ART NETWORK of TORONTO HOSTS FIRST EVER IN TRANSIT ALL-NIGHT PARTY IN CONJUNCTION WITH NUIT ROSE, A WORLD PRIDE EVENT
Toronto, Canada June 4, 2014 On Saturday June 21st, The Women's Arts Network of Toronto W.A.N.T and co-organizer Market 707's Balloon Lady, Deborah Reale, will host an all night art party called IN TRANSIT from 7pm-4am at the Scadding Court Community Centre's Market 707, located at the south-east corner of Dundas Street West and Bathurst. This market-cum-party experience is happening in conjunction with Nuit Rose, Torontos queer contemporary art event celebrating World Pride 2014, and will feature seven artist performances and an all-night market.
Our event occurs between the two designated zones of Nuit Rose: Wellesley Street and Queen Street West. We are literally the space in between, which is a space that so many artists and queer folks can really identify with. An event at Scadding Court not only offers so much in terms of space and possibility for art and creativity, but also really lends itself to community building, said Michelle van Looy, Director of the WANT.
The hourly performances include Burlesque, Poetry, Performance Art, Film, Music and an open mic hour at 2am. This rain or shine event will feature both Queer artists and allies and will be fun but also focus on important issues affecting LGBTQ people as well as the opportunity for global awareness of Canadian Issues.
" WANT will be setting the stage for all the things that are amazing and magical about Pride. The spontaneity of the 7 performers, the community and sharing in the beauty of it. " said Apanaki Temitayo M, WANT Chairman of the Board, Visual Artist and poet. The event begins at 7pm sharp with the first performance and will end at 3:40 am after the last performance. It is PWYC, and after each performance the hat will be passed.
