Art Pop-Ups with the Peterborough Art Hive

Art Pop-Ups with the Peterborough Art Hive
Fridays in May and June
10:00 AM - noon

What if we could connect with each other, our community, & ourselves through the arts?
What if we had a place we could go where we were seen as creative beings, capable & whole? 
What if that place were free, offered a variety of materials, space, & encouragement to create? 
What if it were okay to knit quietly on your own, make a mural with a group, write a poem, work on a song, scribble with charcoal and paint over it with bright blue paint?

The Peterborough Art Hive is partnering with Seeds of Change to run a weekly Pop Up Art Studio intended to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in an atmosphere of cultural exchange, conversation, encouragement, and freedom of expression.

This is for people of all ages, all orientations, all abilities, all walks of life. No art experience necessary.

Supplies will be provided and the event is free of charge (donations welcome).

Location:  The Quarry Golf and Country Club, Ennismore Ontario

CMHA HKPR is pleased to announce that the 12th Annual Healthy Minds – Healthy Life Golf Tournament, sponsored by Kevan and Roberta Herod of Herod Financial Services will take place on Thursday, June 8th at The Quarry. Registration is at 11:00 with a 1:00 shotgun start. Herod Financial Services is pleased to support this tournament once again, to encourage the ongoing conversation about mental health and to help raise funds to support important programs and services offered by CMHA HKPR. 

We know that 1 in 5 people are affected by mental illness in their lifetime but that almost 50% of those who are affected are afraid to seek help due to stigma. Kevan Herod states “Herod Financial Services knows that through talking about our mental health, the stigma of mental illness can be eliminated and more people will get help. We are proud to support CMHA HKPR in their endeavors.”  Some of the funds from the 2016 tournament have been directed towards presenting “Living Life to the Full”, a mental wellness based 8 week group workshop based on cognitive behaviour therapy and the provision of 1,500 Wellness Tool-kits for new clients of CMHA. Other funds from the tournament continue to support mental health education.

Golfers may register as foursomes or as singles at a cost of $150 per person. This includes a lunch provided at registration, dinner, prizes and contests. Register by May 18th and you will be eligible for entry for the early bird prizes. CMHA HKPR thanks Herod Financial Services for once again supporting us as Platinum Sponsor and Tim Nicholls Chartered Accountant as our Gold Sponsor. Other sponsorship opportunities are still available including hole sponsorship. Prize donations are also most welcome.

For information on these opportunities or to register, please contact Kerri Davies – 705-748-6687 ext. 1048 or kdavies@cmhahkpr.ca

Under Water Dining at Lock 21

Imagine this.

You start your journey in a 36′ voyageur canoe, paddling along Canada’s Treasured Waterway and into a large chamber. Effortlessly your canoe begins to rise – you’re in the world’s highest hydraulic lift lock. You paddle out of the chamber and turn around to prepare for your descent – you have a spectacular countryside view and then you glance down – it’s a dramatic 65 foot drop!

Not to worry, it’s a safe descent and with your fellow voyageurs you join “Richard Birdsall Rogers”, the engineer of this magnificent structure who will share stories of the design, construction and workings of this engineering wonder. Sip mocktails and savour hors d’oeuvres with the Tres Hombres, a trio of talented local chefs who have prepared an intimate 5 course dinner for you.

Now it’s time to follow the Lockmaster on a tour of the inner sanctum –  a series of tunnels and chambers, full of secrets and ghostly residents, and a place where very few get to venture. Hidden under the chamber awaits some of the finest and freshest culinary offerings Peterborough & the Kawarthas has to offer.  Retire to the turbine chamber for dessert and appertifs as you cross another unique experience off of your bucket list.

Pushback Premiere

7:30 pm19:30

Pushback Premiere

The Peterborough premiere of the feature-length documentary Pushback is finally here!

Pushback begins as staff and volunteers are closing up shop at the end of the season for the Warming Room - a homeless shelter of last resort in Peterborough, Ontario that provides respite during the cold winter months. The film follows five people connected to the shelter - four guests and a staff member - throughout the following summer and fall as they try to find steady footing without access to many of the supports the shelter provides. In the lead up to the opening of the shelter the next winter, the subjects strive to overcome obstacles from their past. They are besieged by physical injuries, divorce, and drug addiction - as well as new ones encountered during the course of filming - notably an apprehension by Children's Aid Society. Pushback is a portrait of people living with persistent homelessness and often inter-generational poverty in Peterborough, providing an intimate look into lives usually ignored.

Please join us for the world premiere of this local documentary. The full cast and crew will be in attendance. The film (90 minutes) will be followed by a Q&A. For tickets, please visit the Eventbrite page:

Peterborough Cares Long Weekend Event

PETERBOROUGH CARES LAUNCHES SIMULTANEOUS FUNDRAISING EVENTS. 

Seventh year for umbrella group, coordinating multi-charity fundraisers on the same weekend

"Wouldn't it be a great idea to have a number of well-known charitable organizations launch their fundraising events on the same weekend, but at separate, popular shopping locations in the city, under one organizing umbrella?" That was the thought that came to Peterborough business owner, and former separate school board trustee Camille Parent. So, after consulting with a number of area organizations and individuals, Parent is pleased to announce that this year, over the weekend of Friday May 19, through Sunday May 21, Peterborough Cares will once again this year coordinate simultaneous fundraising events across our great city. 

"We are proud once again to bring back what will continue to be one of the biggest humanitarian event ever held in our city on the same weekend," Mr. Parent said.

“A handful of local businesses, such as Morello's independent grocer (and others to be disclosed at a later date) will launch fundraising events on the same weekend, while using venues spread throughout the city. It will be a great opportunity for both volunteers and donors to come together to raise much needed funds for worthwhile causes." 

"We all really believe that this group effort will continue to be successful and fullfill the needs and dreams of many. We are going to raise a lot of money for a number of excellent charitable organizations," Mr. Parent said. "It's the seventh such coordinated event under the Peterborough Cares banner, and we hope to continue to grow bigger as the years go by." For more information about the Peterborough Cares initiative, or to arrange to interview any of the participants, please contact Camille Parent, 705-748-9961, ptbovacuum@homail.com

Film Synopsis: 

On the eve of her 35th birthday, Megan moved back into her childhood home. For the first time in her life, she was alone; both of her parents are dead. In cleaning out her parents’ belongings, she found her father’s journal, long believed lost in a fire. It chronicled his 1973 solo bike journey through Ireland when he was just 26 years old. Struggling with her own grief and broken heart, she decides to take her father’s journal and his original 1973 red Peugeot and return to the land of her ancestors. Will retracing her father’s journey help her to find her own way forward?

Art Pop-Ups with the Peterborough Art Hive

Art Pop-Ups with the Peterborough Art Hive
Fridays in May and June
10:00 AM - noon

What if we could connect with each other, our community, & ourselves through the arts?
What if we had a place we could go where we were seen as creative beings, capable & whole? 
What if that place were free, offered a variety of materials, space, & encouragement to create? 
What if it were okay to knit quietly on your own, make a mural with a group, write a poem, work on a song, scribble with charcoal and paint over it with bright blue paint?

The Peterborough Art Hive is partnering with Seeds of Change to run a weekly Pop Up Art Studio intended to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in an atmosphere of cultural exchange, conversation, encouragement, and freedom of expression.

This is for people of all ages, all orientations, all abilities, all walks of life. No art experience necessary.

Supplies will be provided and the event is free of charge (donations welcome).
