Have you ever visited @loft112? It’s a creative hive for emerging writers, readers, artists and poets to create and collaborate.
In addition to renting out their space for artistic and literary initiatives, the Loft 112 team hosts their own programs, like Night Writer, Book Club, Long Lunch Quick Reads and Inner City Stories – just to name a few!
Looking for a lunch spot with enough options for you, your co-workers, and allllllll your vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free needs? @sidewalkcitizen has got you covered! Every week they have a meat feature and a veggie feature, available as a salad, pita, or in a ciabatta bun. And you’ll definitely want to save room for something sweet – trust us!!
We’re so excited, we want to shout it from the St. Louis rooftop! @marketcollective will be in EV this summer!!
Come one, come all, come all summer long. Market Collective will be setting up a summer long activation at the St. Louis Hotel in @eastvillageyyc. Nestled between the @nmc_canada and the new @calgarylibrary, this beautiful historical space will be home to MC every weekend this June, July and August.
We are looking for artisans to set up shop in this collaborative retail/studio space, where we will be programming it with food trucks, art installations, DJs, and musicians. There will also be a surprise *recreational* activation outside all summer (can't leak the secret yet)!
Deadline to apply: April 26

We can hardly believe how fast the M2 project is moving! Construction on this zig-zagging, mixed-use building by @xycdesign will be finished by the end of this year. When complete, restaurants and retail will spill out onto RiverWalk, while office space and large terraces occupy the upper levels.
Curious to learn more about M2’s design? Check out XYC’s lecture event on April 17, where you can hear from the building’s architect, @narchitects_pllc.

We are BEYOND excited to announce that #YYC artist @katiegreenart will create the 4th temporary installation in our RiverWalk public art program!
This artwork will be particularly special because East Villagers will have a chance to get involved.
Participants will explore the theme of empowerment through anonymity in a series of mask-making workshops, and then be photographed wearing their masks in spaces around EV.
Want to learn more about the process? Come to Katie’s info session on April 13th at the St. Louis Hotel, noon to 2pm.
