Here’s a sneak peek at the “Toronto Neighbourhood Poster” by Jenny Beorkrem designer/founder of Ork Posters. She’s been making “neighbourhood” posters since 2007, including cities like Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, LA, Seattle, San Francisco… the list goes on. She just released the black & white version of the “Toronto” poster, with different colour ways to be released at a later date.
We’ve already put in our order! Stay tuned for your chance to win your very own!

“Face Value” is an exhibition of portrait photography by the artists from “Shoot With This”, an arts-based mentorship collective in the Jane & Finch community, in collaboration with Andrea Marcus. This arts-based educational program is a unique collaboration between the Toronto District School Board, professional artists and community business partner Big It Up International.
The last day to see the show is March 20th, 2010 at the Al Green Gallery – 64 Merton Street, Toronto.
They say “Imitation is the best form of flattery”, in this case we respectfully disagree.
It’s been brought to our attention by one of our loyal readers that the “1 LOVE T.O.” T-shirt/Logo has been cheaply copied and reduced to a fake customized t-shirt. The design has been slightly altered, leaving the number 1 to be very ambiguous. Is it the letter “I” or is it a number “1”?
In any case, we’re very disappointed because our message is being misrepresented. 1 LOVE T.O. is a movement that bridges the gaps – between cultures, neighbourhoods, interests and generations. 1 LOVE T.O. is the unifying voice of our city. We’ve let go of the individualistic message of “I love wherever”. Toronto is different. Toronto is one. And we are all the heart of this magnificent city.
Thanks again to all our loyal followers, friends and family who consistently help spread the message of 1 LOVE T.O.

On Wednesday March 17th, 2010 at 7pm we will be premiering our documentary “T.O. to D.C. – The Journey To Barack Obama’s Inauguration.” at the Isabelle Bader Theatre (93 Charles Street). It will be the first time since just over a year ago that all the passengers will be in the same room again. It will be the first time for us to share our journey with friends, family, and media that were not on our trip, and we would be honoured to have you join us.
Our purpose was to provide an opportunity to be a part of history. We have re-lived history through songs and stories but this time we had a chance to live it out. We also felt it important that Toronto had a presence on this historic day. We believe that this day wasn’t simply a great day for Black history or just American history but more so a significant day for all of us in World history.
On this trip there were 168 people ranging in age from 11-63yrs. A representation of all races and religions all residing in what we call ‘The World In 1 City’ our home 1 Love T.O.
The Riverhouse in Niagara Falls is a relatively new home designed by the Zerafa Studio. The home is built on a 1.85 acre piece of land based on the Niagara River with beautiful views of the natural surroundings. The designers used a variety of materials including cedar, glass, metal and open space to help create a strong visual connection to the outdoors.
