  • Get ready for Question Period, Mother Nature Partnership's second infamous trivia night! Come to the Drake Hotel on December 2, 2014 for a good food, good drink, great cause party.

    Comedic geniuses Hannah Cheesman & Kristian Bruun will test your knowledge of the factual and the inane, and of course, into every trivia night a little blood must fall with some period-centric questions. You’ll be having so much fun that you will barely notice you are supporting MNP’s groundbreaking work in January 2015: all proceeds will help provide 1,000 girls in Cameroon with menstrual health supplies and information. Plus – there are prizes to be won!

    You can sign up your team of four players or sign up as an individual (do you trust our matchmaking skills?!). Name your team (and yes, there are points for wit and cleverness).

    Doors open at 7 pm so we can roll up our sleeves and get serious about trivia at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 per person or $60 for a team of four. See you at #QuestionPeriodTO.

  • Composer / producer / singer Lydia Ainsworth has been secretly writing and recording songs over the past three years from bedrooms and basements between Toronto and Brooklyn. What began as pass-time sketches between composing music for film and multimedia projects has over time revealed an enchanting collection of experimental pop songs with a life of their own.

    Blurring the boundaries between indie music, filmic orchestration, and electronic music, Lydia’s debut ‘Right From Real’ thrives on haunting melodies and draws inspiration from a wide range of musical sources: Verdi’s Requiem, Ace of Base, Bulgarian Choirs, Bernard Herrmann, Tones on Tail, Art of Noise, to name a few. This sense of unexpected marriages of influence flows throughout much of Lydia’s previous work which features use of voice sampling and string arrangements woven into a unique minimalist fabric.
