Throughout the evening we are having lightning talks from members of our community. Our first volume of talks is called "RETHINKING Culture." These are members of our greater campus community who are sharing insights into how they build community. Our second volume, "Creators Insights" come from current creators at the Stratford Campus who are experimenting in various mediums and sharing their learnings.

What Is The York Lane Art Collective?
by Claire Scott, Operator of York Lane Art Collective
York Lane Art Collective is a volunteer-run, creative art space for artists to express themselves, collaborate with others, and fuel inspiration. Sometimes a gallery, sometimes a concert, YLAC is an ever-evolving space where disciplines are practised, experienced and expressed. This place thrives on sustaining an artistic community. We emphasize on collaboration, where individual skill sets are exchanged to expand horizons and grow artistic visions. We respect and encourage all forms of art and creativity. Located in the alley of York Lane behind Ontario street, you will be intrigued to discover Stratford’s vibrant, inspirational, local art scene. After our first full year open, we have curated 12 gallery exhibitions, screened local artists’ films, hosted local theatre productions, play-readings, book readings, poetry nights, a ton of live music and concerts, held classes and given opportunities to artists to sell work.
