IMAGINATE 2015, hosted by nationally acclaimed writer and humourist Deborah Kimmett, will feature short, TED-style presentations by compelling speakers and performing artists, as well as a visual art exhibition. Locally-sourced food and drink, catered by The Social Bar & Table, will be on offer at a reception (included in your $50 ticket).
IMAGINATE 2015 brings together creatives, teachers, journalists, entrepreneurs, social workers, parents, students and farmers to be challenged by the possibility of positive change in our community. It’s that kind of human-level response that is at the heart of Green Wood’s story in Port Hope.
When presented with a difficult problem, there are often two responses to choose from, “the government should do something about that”, or “there’s nothing anyone can do about that”. Green Wood has opted for a third way, stepping forward as neighbours to respond, through trust and intentional relationship, to daily challenges, and provide hope in the lives of our members. Finding that third way is at the heart of IMAGINATE 2015.
In addition to outstanding speakers such as broadcaster, Noah Richler, conservationist, Carmen Lishman and journalist, Steve Buist, IMAGINATE 2015 will include the premiere of both a contemporary dance performance and a short film by award-winning filmmaker, Rob Quartly.
Tickets for IMAGINATE 2015 at Trinity College School are available online at www.greenwoodcoalition.com/Imaginate or Ganaraska Art & Framing in Port Hope.
