Growing Futures

Growing Futures is a collaborative initiative spearheaded by the Parkdale Food Centre that brings local businesses, community partners and young entrepreneurs together to foster a healthier, more resilient next generation. This initiative involves the purchasing of growing towers or walls that can produce healthy greens all year round.

 

The first phase, a collaboration between local businesses and students, involved the planting, growing and harvesting of fresh produce. The harvested greens are both sold and turned into marketable products, serving as a living lab in entrepreneurship for students who participate in every step of the process! The goal of this program is to not only increase the access to healthy food for people in this community, but to further encourage community collaboration to better fund the future.

 

Based on the success of this first phase, the community, our Mayor, and local business owners have come together to launch phase two, on April 6th, at the Innovation Centre, where additional partners will be announced.  This includes Algonquin College, the Innovation Centre, Tartan Homes, GCTC and many local food partners including Red Apron, Peter Fines Meats, Thyme and Again, Seed to Sausage, Pure Kitchen, The Beckta Group, Absinth and Wellington Gastropub just to name a few. These businesses will come together not only to promote and sell the harvests from these towers but to mentor and partner with the Parkdale Food Centre.

 

Additionally, two towers will be housed in the lobby of GCTC and sponsored by Tartan Homes with the Fisher park/Summit students continuing to be part of this growing initiative.

 

In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the goal is to have 150 of these growing systems installed in Ottawa in 2017, in the hopes that this can further inspire the implementation of these systems across the country!

Exposure Gallery

Check out Exposure Gallery, Exposure Gallery is a creative collaboration between the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa and Thyme and Again. This space functions not only as a sophisticated gallery space, but also as a restaurant, a gathering space, and a venue for special events. Through this collaboration, we hope to strengthen the existing community and to introduce a new audience to the appreciation of photo-based art. The gallery is located on the top floor of Thyme and Again.

The dark worlds depicted in E N C O U N T E R S are filled tension, unheard dialogues, and missed intentions. We layer our own insecurities over the image to give ourselves the illusion of closure. The macro-photographic approach is a crucial aspect of the construction of the images. The camera captures a real space, in real light, using optics to demonstrate an on-going fascination with photography’s ability to fabricate a world of our imagination. When I reach back into my childhood, I created scenes and worlds that were my alternate and necessary reality. I could make a tent in the living room where science fiction and toys became my universe. As an artist, this has evolved into the opportunity to revive play in order to create implied narratives.

Mark Bartkiw is a photographic artist with twenty years of experience since studying photography at Sheridan College. While in Toronto he has worked in a range of genre including editorial, portrait, advertising, fashion and music industry photography.
