Is Vancouver the best place to live in the entire universe? Yes. Yes it is. Emerica. Wild in the Streets. Vancouver BC. 1:26 mark of this video makes me smile. I love this city. What up Cyrus!
More proof that Sesame Street (the original series) was the greatest show EVER. In 1979, famed-composer Philip Glass wrote a series of pieces for the show called “Geometry of Circles”.
Kids these days aren’t getting the visual education they need! So many of today’s designers were being taught design principles at an early age by shows like Sesame Street.
Canal180 is seeking participants for their annual Media Arts Academy. 180 Creative Camp runs from July 3 – 10 in Abrantes, Portugal.

This year’s lineup includes: Spanish street art collective Boa Mistura, curator Frank Kalero, architecture and design specialist Javier Peña Ibáñez, illustrators José Cardoso and Simon Landrein, Intern magazine founder Alec Dudson, and film directors Sean Dunne and Isaac Niemand.
The event is designed for people from all disciplines and all parts of the world to interact, inspire and collaborate with one another through 8 days of workshops, talks and activities organized throughout the beautiful city of Abrantes!

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!
This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.
There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.
FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy Salon, Spotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.
