Yesterday we we’re having a conversation about the infamous Toronto Zanta. If you don’t live in Toronto you might be asking yourself what the hell is a Zanta? Well, Zanta is Santa with a “Z”. He’s a fan favourite when it comes to the streets of Toronto. He’s entertained us with his sound effects (yes, yes yes), and the insane amount of push-ups he’s done with his bare knuckles. He’s a shirtless superhero, and a Toronto Icon. Unfortunately, a few years ago Zanta(David Zancai) was banned from Toronto for his “inappropriate” behavior.
It’s been awhile since the last Zanta sighting, so we want to know… “Have You Seen Zanta”?
It’s not only my pleasure, but an honor to introduce to you Nadia & Nayani, co-founders of Kaleid (pronounced “collide”, deriving from the word “kaleidoscope”). Kaleid is a new Toronto based website that focuses on the South-Asian Community through a variety of things such as: art, culture, entertainment, events and more. Kaleid represents the idea of bringing people together, collaborating creatively and creating a movement through the arts.
Both Nadia & Nayani are incredible young talents, and I encourage you to check out their blog, contribute to their movement, and/or be inspired to do something for your community.
So proud of you ladies!
(Side Note: Nadia & Nayani are recent graduates from The Remix Project’s Creative Arts Program.)
Toronto’s own Keys N Krates performing on the Olympic stage, with snowboarders jumping through the rings of fire. We’re proud to support both the athletes and artists who represented in Whistler at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.
Toronto’s own PG just released her official music video for “Lady” Ft. Kyauna. It’s incredible to see so many talented young people come together to make it happen. Too many cameo’s to name: Rich Kidd, Lokz, Big Norm, Phantom, Linda, Omada, Davey Wavey, Famous, the list goes on…
Calibre Entertainment, Temple Street Productions, The Remix Project and John Tory introduced 3 young filmmakers who won their chance to shoot their own film with the City Life Film Project. The launch of City Life marks another initiative in Toronto that continues to support our youth in the arts. We can’t wait to see what’s next…
It’s our honor to introduce our friends, Amanda Parris and Natasha Daniel, who over the past four years have led a movement called “Lost Lyrics”. We could go on about this initiative, but the power is in the video, watch and learn.
So proud of you ladies!
All your dedication, motivation and passion for making a change in our communities is something all of us can be proud of.
By now, you’ve probably already seen this Alexisonfire video for “The Northern”… but we thought it was good enough to post just incase you haven’t. The video was shot in both Edmonton and Toronto by Director Michael Maxxis.
