Click That ‘Hood is a new game from Code for America that tests your Toronto neighbourhood knowledge. There are two different options to play. The first option allows you to play against the clock while trying to select 20 random neighbourhoods throughout the city. The second option is a little more difficult, as it challenges you to try and identify 139 neighbourhoods. Good Luck!

Beth Lesser’s exhibit “Reggae or Not: The Birth of Dancehall Culture in Jamaica & Toronto” is an important look at the evolution of reggae music during the 1970s and 80s. During this time she travelled extensively between Jamaica and Toronto documenting the music scene as it became popular in places like Toronto’s Kensington Market, Little Jamaica’s Eglinton Ave West and St. Clair Ave East. Dancehall music grew in popularity not only because of Jamaican immigrants and reggae enthusiasts, but from the help of community radio stations like CKLN who broadcasted Jamaica’s “Reggae Showcase”.
The exhibit runs until February 28th at the Gladstone Hotel with live music, panel discussions and film nights.

You might remember our post back in April ’09, about the “Beautiful City” initiative. It aims to implement a “Billboard Tax” that holds advertisers accountable for their impact on public spaces. Implementation of the bylaw/tax would increase arts funding in Toronto while opening access to different forms of expression in our public spaces.
Recently the Supreme court of Canada upheld the billboard tax unlocking one of the last barriers to increased funding for the arts in Toronto. This billboard tax was first proposed to the city in 2001 during the Creative City Youth Consultations as a way to enhance art in the public realm and empower diverse voices.
Tonight inside City Hall, artists, city councillors and young people from across the GTA held an art rally in support of the idea of using the billboard tax to rejuvenate arts and culture in Toronto.
It’s still not too late to get involved!
