  • Let's talk! What We Talk About, the quarterly lecture series, returns this fall—now presented by Little Brother, the literary magazine that the Globe and Mail calls “several kinds of new.”

    For each edition of What We Talk About, curator Peter Merriman chooses three figures from different disciplines who will deliver brief lectures on a given topic. Following the talks, the speakers will engage in a group discussion, mix and match ideas, and invite audience questions and conversation. Like the magazine, WWTA brings together bright people, playful ideas, and intellectual rigour, topped with a healthy dose of wit and irreverence. It's about celebrating curiosity, building community, and, most of all, having fun.

    The theme for the first edition of What We Talk About is “witchy women.” Speakers include:
    Kiva Reardon, founding editor of cléo: a journal of film and feminism, speaking on the commercialization of witch hunt history.
    Derek McCormack, novelist and author of The Haunted Hillbilly and The Show That Smells, speaking on the mysterious Vera West, costume designer during Hollywood's Golden Age.
    Elio Iannacci, Culture Editor of FASHION magazine, speaking on the enduring appeal of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

    What We Talk About was originally founded by Peter Merriman and Alicia Louise Merchant in 2012, and is now part of Little Brother Projects. Little Brother is a Toronto-based, internationally-recognized print magazine that features the best of a new generation of Canadian writers and artists. In its short history, it has won a Gold National Magazine Award, been selected for the Coupe Design Annual, and been featured in The Toronto Star, Monocle, and Dazed and Confused.

  • Motel Raphaël is a young indie-folk-pop band from Montreal, led by Clara Legault, Emily Skahan and Maya Malkin. Since their inception in 2012, this seven piece outfit has risen through the ranks of Montreal’s burgeoning indie scene at an astronomical pace. Headlining performances at POP Montreal, CMW, Fringe Fest, M for Montreal alongside ranking in CBC Music’s national Searchlight competition have garnered them comparisons to Tegan and Sara, Feist, Fleet Foxes and Mumford & Sons as well as unabashedly glowing praise from the press community. Their harmonies are haunting, their lyrics honest, and the delivery of their performances are wrought with a heart-melting sincerity that will warm the coldest soul.

    Motel Raphaël’s debut full-length Cable TV is a soaring tale of heartbreak, longing and redemption delivered with a songwriting maturity that far exceeds the fact that the band members are all still in their early twenties. With their eyes set firmly on the horizon, Motel Raphaël are poised to become the band to watch in 2014.

  • 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!
