Hawksley Workman

54254934_1287734604713603_3294733742781759488_o.jpg

Hawksley Workman is a Two-time JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. A staple of the Canadian music and arts scene for over 20 years, Workman boasts a catalogue of 16 releases,showcasing his now signature blend of anthemicfolk and show-stopping vocals.

Hawksley’s touring career has seen him play over a thousand shows worldwide. He’s headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall in Toronto and The Olympia in Paris, and opened for heroes Morrissey, David Bowie, and The Cure.

As a producer, his fingerprints grace releases by JUNO and Polaris Prize nominees and winners like Tegan and Sara, Sarah Slean, Serena Ryder, Hey Rosetta!, and Great Big Sea. He’s also penned melodies with a myriad of artists, from Oscar award winning Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, Inception) to the late French rock icon Johnny Hallyday.

A slight departure from past musical feats, in 2016 Workman released a children’s illustrated book titled Almost a Full Moon, a warm-hearted tale of family, community, food and home. A story of a boy and his grandmother on a cold winter’s night, his words are beautifully complemented with the rich illustrations of Jensine Eckwall, who helps brings beauty and a hint of magic to Workman's evocative lyrics. Together, they create a world and a night that will enchant readers of all ages. Almost a Full Moonwas published September 2016 by Tundra Books (a division of Penguin Random House).

Following a recent move to Montreal, Hawksley wrote and recorded his 17thalbum, set to release March 2019. Produced by The Dearscreative genius, Murray Lightburn, the record will reveal Hawksley’s hooky yet innovative melodic approach, authentic songwriting, and good old-fashioned unedited musicianship.

Hawksley Workman is many things to many people in many places, but primarily, he’s a student of the human psyche; an artist in the purest sense of the word, constantly finding fresh and interesting ways to frame and share the world –the people we are and the things we encounter. It’sa virtually bottomless well of ideas for a man with virtually endless imagination and creative outlets.

Jackson Creek has been a focal point of Peterborough's economic, social, and environmental past. This walk will be a conversation about how Jackson Creek and other places in our community connect us to the land and the people around us. How might we use environmental restoration as a means for building community resilience? Over 3 hours we will discover the hidden Creek as it runs through downtown and out of the city centre.

4:00pm - The walk will end at Jackson Park.

All are welcome to attend this free event. The route will consist of city sidewalks, street crossings, paved alleys and parking garages, paved trails, and gravel trails. There will be plenty of breaks for conversation. The route will be linear, the starting and ending points are about 2.6km apart on foot (roughly 30-40min walk). We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle and snacks. Dogs must be kept on leash, please stoop and scoop.

Inviting Resilience Conference

image1.jpeg

Inviting Resilience is the overarching theme of a national conference to be hosted by Trent University; Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre; and The Mane Intent Inc. on May 21 & May 22, 2019 at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. The Inviting Resilience Conference will combine academic and experiential learning to provide meaningful opportunities in building community capacity for the newest evidence-based practices; community-driven, multi-sectoral initiatives; and trauma-informed programming focused on building resilience in youth and adults impacted by childhood trauma and sexual violence over the lifespan.

Dr. Kateryna (Katia) Keefer will Chair the Inviting Resilience conference. Dr. Keefer is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at Trent University and the research lead for Building Internal Resilience Through Horses. Her program of research is focused on the developmental dynamics and applications of socioemotional competencies in the promotion of wellness and resilience across the lifespan. As an emerging scholar, Dr. Keefer has co-authored over 30 journal articles and book chapters on the topics of emotional intelligence, resilience, mental health, and psychological assessment; delivered numerous invited talks and conference presentations on these topics; and co-edited the Springer book of Emotional Intelligence in Education.

Dr. Keefer is the opening plenary keynote scheduled at 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Her presentation themed Resourceful Communities, Resilient Youth will focus on the developmental dynamics and applications of socioemotional competencies in the promotion of wellness and resilience across the lifespan. She will also share preliminary research results from Building Internal Resilience Through Horses.

Dr. Sandrina de Finney is the Associate Professor and Graduate Advisor, School of Child and Youth Care, at the University of Victoria. Dr. de Finney is an associate professor whose primary focus of scholarship is Indigenous and minoritized populations, particularly youth in care and girls/young women. Drawing on over two decades of experience as a community activist, researcher, trainer and youth worker, Dr. Sandrina’s academic work documents the impact of (neo)colonial practices and policies and how racialized communities negotiate and disrupt their effects. Her scholarship is rooted in participatory, action-oriented, and arts-based methods and draws on Indigenous, queer, anti-racist, anti/postcolonial and transnational feminist theories and perspectives.

The theme of Dr. de Finney’s keynote scheduled for Wednesday, May 22 at 8:45 a.m. is: Indigenous Resurgence as Resilience: Promising Pathways for Resilience and Healing in Indigenous Contexts. In this presentation, Dr. de Finney will explore the issues of trauma, resilience, healing and reconciliation can be reconsidered through Indigenous lens. This conceptual shift takes Indigenous resilience out of its individualized psycho-social definition and locates it instead in relationship with ancestors, lands, kinship, and self-determination.

Mamma Mia Auditions

57024095_2216071255116344_8697881452454346752_n.jpg

St James Player's 2019 Fall Show!

Directed by Jacquie Butler

Mamma Mia!
Sophie is getting married and wants nothing more than for her father to walk her down the isle. But who is her father?
This modern day musical featuring songs from the super group ABBA, is a musical about free spirited women who are independent, fun loving and hoping for romance.

Sunday May 5th 6pm-730pm Males
730pm-10pm Females

Monday May 6th 6pm-730pm Males
730pm-10pm Females

Callbacks - Monday May 13th 7pm.

Please come prepared with a song to sing and sheet music is preferred. There will also be a short dance portion.
*please do not choose a song from the show*

Looking for adults, age 16 plus.

Wondering why the auditions are only for 16+?
Mamma Mia is a demanding show that calls for a range of adult roles. As the script is written, there are no discrete roles for children in this production. St. James Players believes it is valuable to have young performers on stage whenever possible, so this production will have a small Junior Chorus, comprised of some of our Spring Show players. The director will send out invitations to join the Junior Chorus by email, on or before May 5.

Note: If you are 15, but are turning 16 in 2019, you qualify to audition!

57451189_1200325480135098_369036844341395456_o.jpg

All are welcome to join us on a walking discussion through Peterborough’s downtown. Along the way we will chat about what we want for the future, maybe what we don’t want and how can we help make that happen.

We’ll cover a number of topics:
What makes an economically healthy downtown?
Who is downtown for? How do we make it for everyone?
Car versus pedestrian versus bicycles; making it work.
How do we preserve the historical fabric of downtown while still encouraging growth?

Walk Details
All are welcome to attend this free event. We will meet outside the Ontario Government building at 300 Water St (Charlotte St. and Water St.). Parking is available underground at Peterborough Square.

The route will consist of paved surfaces and street crossings. There will be plenty of breaks for conversation. Dogs are welcome and must be kept on leash, please stoop and scoop. Please let us know at janeswalkptbo@gmail.com if you have any accommodation needs.

May is Shifting Gears in Peterborough, we encourage you to walk, bike, bus, or carpool to and from the walk - and remember to log your trips!

HockeyFest - Game On!

57111759_2561919427212475_3138411561865969664_o.jpg

HockeyFest - Game On!
In partnership with the Peterborough Petes and the Peterborough Memorial Centre
May 4-5, 2019

REGISTRATION OPENS FEB. 1

www.hockeyfestgameon.com

Growing up, all we ever wanted to do is play as much hockey as possible. Whether it was Sunday morning skates or late night games, pre-game cheers or puck drop, road trips and mini sticks or make-shift street hockey, our passion for the game has shaped us into who we are today. It has taught us to be team players, to respect others, to listen carefully, what effort truly means, and that you can’t always win. With sticks in our hands and a team surrounding us, nothing else matters.

Forget about yelling “car”, dragging nets to the curbs, or running down the street to get your ball. Forget about trying to remember the score and about calling your own penalties. Take the essence of hockey, the integration of real rinks, the support of official referees and you get the largest street hockey tournament in North America. Each game is played on 50% to scale NHL sized rinks with real boards, real netting and real referees. With this, we bring you Hockeyfest - Game On!

Each tournament features 4 on 4 street hockey for divisions of all ages and genders without the worry of your ball going out, fencing going down or unofficial refereeing. DJ’s will be playing throughout the day with local live music at night. Indulge in your favourite food and beverage vendors, drinks with the team, and kill time by playing our interactive games such as the hardest shot, mini stick rinks, shooting accuracy and more. Hockeyfest - Game On! is bringing the passion of sport, music, food and fun together for a family-fun festival.

“We knew there was a North-American wide demand to grow the game of hockey at a grassroots level and felt there were multiple untapped markets to do so in. By putting real money behind the idea and investing in real rinkboards, we knew we had something special. No one has ever been able to bring you a full-scale traveling road hockey tournament with real rinks, real refs, real fun and integrated festival aspects; and that’s exactly what HockeyFest – Game On! is. With 6 markets to start in 2019, we intend to grow exponentially.”
Brad Jones – President, Jones Entertainment Group

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
What separates Hockeyfest-Game On from other road hockey tournaments? Each game is played on a 42.5ft x 100ft surface with FULL patented rinkboards and netting behind each goalie to ensure no time is lost retrieving balls. All games will be played with certified referees from local referee associations.

All divisions U9 and under will have a roster of 9 players (4 + goalie) and all divisions older will have a roster of up to 7 players (3 + goalie).

No matter what, each team is GUARANTEED 4 games and 70% of all registered teams will make the playoffs.

We are fully organized with the best partners in the business to ensure no details are over-looked. Our registration and scheduling process allows for up to the minute updates on any delays or early starts with push messages sent directly to team manager's phones.

Working hand in hand with our local partners to ensure ongoing entertainment and an overall positive festival experience. Music will be playing, vendors will be selling merchandise and food, beer gardens are provided for the older divisions and interactive games will be available to all ages.

TESTIMONIALS

“I was lucky enough to participate in the very first Hockeyfest – Game On! (London, August 2018) and I have to say that this was by far the coolest road hockey event I have seen. From playing with actual rink boards and DJ’s to the interactive games and food trucks, people of all ages were having the time of their lives!”
Dave Bolland – NHL Player & 2 x Stanley Cup Champion
“When I met Brad Jones with Jones Entertainment Group, and heard about his Hockeyfest – Game On! idea, I was immediately interested. It brought me back to my youth, growing up in Quebec, and playing road hockey with friends and teammates. This concept has the potential to benefit the game in many ways, and is a fun family festival atmosphere that will help grow hockey from the roots. I see the vision for this to take place on a larger touring level scale making it a win-win for many, and most importantly the game of hockey.”
Pat Brisson – CAA Sports

Update: The Saturday, May 4th outdoor market us cancelled due to inclement weather! 

We invite you to listen to the sounds of our local musicians while visiting our 100+ vendor outdoor market May 1 to October 31, rain or shine in the Morrow Building parking lot. From November 1 to April 30, we are located inside the Morrow Building just south of the parking lot.

The establishment of a central market area for individual trade or sales has been a feature of societies all over the world for centuries. This trade has taken place in Peterborough for the past 190 years. This efficient method of commerce (ie. producer, direct to consumer) has gained much interest in recent years as small businesses have grown. We at the Peterborough Farmers’ Market are proud to be part of this popular phenomenon.

As producers of local food and crafts, we stress freshness, quality and value as we deal each and every week with our market patrons. Come and enjoy this traditional shopping experience.
