  • From October 17-31 2014, Mohammad Rezaei is our Drake Lab artist in residence. His residency, Strong Bold Unique Wild, is an "everything up to now", a retrospective if you will, of all of his interests within the art world.

    For the duration of his time at the Drake Lab, He will bring together all of his most frequent collaborators, mentors and friends to activate the space. This residency will be a curatorial effort, an exhibition space, an artist lab, a studio space, a workshop and a pop up shop of sorts.

    From 12-9PM on October 30, Raft and Map will take over the Drake Lab for a pop up shop. The Guelph print collective will present their works for sale, will be present for autograph signings, as well, to doodle and draw with you.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
