On Wednesday, May 5th, the Catalyst dance company presented “The 5th Element”, an evening filled with live dance entertainment, intercultural dialogue, and public awareness! The production brought together members of the arts community, directors, media, and those who strongly support diversity, change, and arts education, all in an effort to raise funds for Free the Children’s Artsbound Initiative.

Here’s a quick little video that one of our 1loveto.com readers sent us from a dance competition in Montreal. It’s always super cool to see the shirt on people especially when it’s outside of our city limits.

The message is important and is universal because one love includes all of us. We are very proud that he chose to wear the shirt to represent himself in the competition.

Bonus, his moves were sick.


For the past few days I’ve been on tour with Drake and the rest of the team and needless to say it’s been an amazing experience. Gorgeous hotels, tour busses, concerts, after parties, city to city partying with every hometown hero from T.I. and Soulja boy in L.A. to Erykah Badu and Lil twist in Dallas.

Which leads me to this, after the super sold out concert in Dallas last night and crazy after party I guess he could of went to bed but instead of taking advantage of the luxurious hotel suite, I witnessed him do this…

Drake is one of the hardest working people I’ve ever met, I hope you like it.

During the CONTACT Photography Festival, we got a sneak peek of the Herman & Audrey Exhibition at the Baitshop Gallery (358 Dufferin #117). The collection of work was a collaborative effort from 11 different artists, including Cory and Scott from the “Street Perceptions” exhibit.

The Colour of Beauty

Toronto’s own Renee Thompson is trying to make it as a top fashion model in New York. She’s got the looks, the walk and the drive. But she’s a black model in a world where white women represent the standard of beauty. Agencies rarely hire black models. And when they do, they want them to look “like white girls dipped in chocolate.”

“The Colour of Beauty” is a shocking short documentary that examines racism in the fashion industry. Is a black model less attractive to designers, casting directors and consumers? What is the colour of beauty?

This film is by Elizabeth St. Philip as part of the Work For All series, produced by the National Film Board of Canada, with the participation of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
