SPC Card for George Brown students [Wednesday
September 3rd, 2008]

matt358
[ mood | cheerful ]

Just a heads up for other george brown students:  you can get an SPC card (student price card) which gives you discounts at a bunch of places like Bluenotes, Burger King, Second Cup, etc.

It's a pretty good deal cause it's $8.50 and you get a free $10 gift card for Esprit, Guess, Jean Machine or Best Buy.  You can get it online at http://www.spccard.ca, they also have a list of all the stores you can get discounts at.

For those that already have the card, share some of the deals you've gotten!

Assaulted Women's and Children's Counsellor/Advocate Program @ George Brown College [Tuesday
April 15th, 2008]

susheela
Hey everyone,

I'm going back to school and looking at the Assaulted Women's and Children's Counsellor/Advocate Program at George Brown.

Wondering if anyone is/was in this program? What are/were your experiences?

Barring that, if anyone has any insight into their Social & Community Services programs in general that'd be much appreciated :)

Thanks!

portfolios [Saturday
March 22nd, 2008]

foutu
first of all, have any GTA students mailed their portfolios? (any program--the 200km rule is universal). i live in barrie but it's the last 2-3 weeks of school and the buses don't run early enough for me to get a go train and get to george brown for 9am.

second of all, where would i sign up for a portfolio interview online for graphic design? i haven't received letters or emails yet requesting portfolios from any school i applied to, but i have the option online to sign up for an interview at other schools. interesting!

Has the weather got you down? Are you looking to beat the winter blahs?
Do you love the news?
Are you just looking to get involved with something?

Come volunteer for The Real News.


The Real News is an independent, non-profit, video-based news organization that will be financed through monthly donations from viewers across the globe. It will not bend to corporate or government pressure, which will give its journalists the freedom to think and act independently and courageously.

With its growing coverage, from the lead-up to the U.S. presidential elections, to Venezuela, to the Middle East, it is well on its way to having a 24-hour web based news service and an hour-long daily show for television, with the main offices being right here in the heart of Toronto.

Of course, none of this would be possible without volunteers, who have been vital to The Real News since its creation.

Come join a growing organization that could put your skills to good use. We are looking for volunteers to come in at least once a week, for four hours in the morning or the afternoon.

If you’re interested in journalism, production, development, web development, social media and communications, translation, or just want to get involved, this could be the place for you.

If interested, contact ninaa@therealnews.com.
Please include a resumé or short blurb about yourself.

Ladyfest Toronto 2008
Call out for volunteers

Ladyfest Toronto is a four-day arts, culture and music festival. We are a non-profit, grassroots, do-it-yourself collective who seek to promote urban feminism. We work from a framework that is pro-feminist, trans-inclusive, pro-diversity and anti-oppressive. We seek to build community among Toronto's feminist businesses, artists, activists and academic community. We believe that art is a powerful form of resistance and hope to incite dialogue about contemporary feminist issues in our city. We will be providing a venue for women to express themselves and showcase their work free of sexism, classism, racism, and homophobia; as well as other forms of oppression.

We believe that politics can be fun and hope to facilitate political action and create tools for feminist networking at our annual event. We will proudly showcase the talent and actions of both local and international women. Ultimately, we hope Ladyfest Toronoto inspires women everywhere to organize themselves and create similar spaces that allow women's creative works to be seen and heard, as other Ladyfest's have for us.

Ladyfest Toronto offers something for everyone, whether you are identify as a feminist or are curious about the ideas of it.

This year’s festival will be taking place Thursday, September 18th to Sunday, September 21st 2008.

Two textbooks for sale [Wednesday
January 2nd, 2008]

d_phoenix_angel
Selling the following textbooks:

DESIGN IN READING, An Introduction to Critical Reading, 2nd Edition
by Richmond Garrigus

ISBN#: 0-321-09630-4
(9-780321096302)


This textbook is required for a number of college and university classes.
It sells for $89.95 at college bookstores and Amazon.com

My copy is in perfect condition, and I'm selling for $65,
for no other reason then to give incentive to buy it.

-------------------------------------------------------

BECOMING A MASTER STUDENT, Canadian 3rd Edition
by Dave Ellis(aka David B. Ellis)

ISBN#: 0-395-98517-X
(9-780395985175)

"Tools, techniques, hints, ideas, illustrations, examples, methods, procedures, processes, skills, resources, and suggestions for success."

This textbook is required for a number of classes, particularly (but not limited to) the General Arts and Sciences program.

It sells for $70 Canadian at the bookstores and Amazon.com
My copy is in perfect condition, and I'm selling for $50, for no other reason then to give incentive to buy it.


Speaking from experience, this one is also a difficult text to acquire second-hand, as it has many charts and activity sheets in it which are usually required to be filled out in class.
My copy is untouched, so that you have full use of all the charts you will need.
----------------------------------------------------------

Texts are available for pick-up, but other arrangements can be made if that is impossible.
I'm also willing to negotiate, so long as your offer is reasonable.

Please leave a comment if you're interested.

Here is the press release - please send it to your drinking buddies/crazy aunts/filmmaker friends/favourite bands/rogue reporters/lady artists/etc etc.

We're looking for musicians, artists, filmmakers and workshop leaders to lend their talents to Ladyfest Toronto 2007, happening in and around Kensington Market from September 27th-30th. The aim of the festival is to incite dialogue about contemporary feminist issues through the arts, by giving women the chance to showcase their amazing creativity.

About Ladyfest Toronto

Ladyfest Toronto is a grassroots, do-it-yourself community-based organization designed by women and for everyone. We seek to promote urban feminism and showcase, celebrate and encourage talents of women. Ladyfest Toronto 2007 continues the Ladyfest tradition of making feminism fun and breaking down barriers for women artists.


History of Ladyfest
The festival began in August of 2000 in Olympia, Washington, the home of the Riot-Grrrl movement. It was a woman-organized and woman-run event that featured performances by bands, spoken word artists, authors, and visual artists. It also included workshops, panel discussions, and dance parties. The 2000 festival had a strong momentum, inspiring women from around the globe to organize similar festivals in their own communities.

In the last seven years Ladyfests have taken place in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Canadian cities that have hosted Ladyfests include Vancouver, Guelph, Toronto, Halifax and Ottawa.
