Fight To End Cancer: Live-To-Air Gala Broadcast

  • Brasen Head Irish Pub

Founded in 2011, the Fight To End Cancer has raised over $500,000 in support of cancer research, with proceeds going directly to the Princess Margaret Urgent Cancer Priorities Fund at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

The year-long fundraising efforts of the Fight To End Cancer are celebrated each year in an event like no other. Featuring a new group of white-collar men and women, with no prior boxing experience, Fight To End Cancer’s annual black tie gala concludes months of their intense training, in true Olympic-style boxing, and hard work in achieving personal fundraising goals. Fight To End Cancer has quickly grown to become a premium fundraiser and showcases these brave individuals, as they lace up their gloves and step into our ring to help knock out cancer.

Enjoy a Sweetgrass at the Live-To-Air Gala Broadcast at Brasen Head Irish Pub.

"Threads" Art Residency Closing Party

  • Farside

Farside's Artist In Residence, Daniel Tapper with his installation THREADS, invite you to the closing party, April 30th. Come hear the sound-sculpture, watch videos and more this Sunday at the closing party. Starts at 7pm. Presented by The Ontario Arts Council, FAIR & Sweetgrass Brewery.

"Threads is an installation and instrument designed to encourage collaborative performance. Inspired by mushroom mycelium networks the structure is not inherently musical, encouraging a process of exploration and play to form a myriad of unique and individual performance styles and techniques. Threads combines acoustically produced and digitally processed sounds blurring the line between natural and digital, as the installation grows with additional parts, processing and performer’s - sonic gestures collide creating symbiotic relationships bonding performers and instrument in an immersive web of sound.

The installation uses a combination of DIY instrument building techniques combined with sophisticated digital signal processing and multi-channel speaker diffusion."
