2017 Manning Innovation Symposium

2017 Manning Innovation Symposium Poster
Thursday, November 30, 2017 - 11:00am to 2:00pm

Join us at the Symposium, to hear from and mingle with six innovators – four Manning Laureates and two OCAD U innovators. Their brief and dynamic presentations about their pathways to innovation will be followed by a complimentary lunch and a ‘speed innovating’ experience where you can connect one-on-one with these inspiring innovators and more.

For 36 years, the Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation has been creating a culture of innovation in Canada by discovering, encouraging and rewarding Canadian innovators and telling their stories. Manning Laureates’ innovations are commercially viable and touch all areas of human endeavour.

Shore Lunch: Landing Under Water

Saturday, June 21, 2014 - 1:30am to 2:30am

Alumna Lisa Myers: MFA in Criticism & Curatorial Practice (2011)

Shore Lunch is a multi-site art venue that takes the form of a camp kitchen. Inspired by stories of my Mother's fishing skills and her love for pulling up on an island and frying up fish over a fire, I created this project to think more about the layers of history, the interaction of waterfront leisure areas and industrial hubs around the Great Lakes. I'm camping out for a while to acknowledge the different kinds of sustenance we get from this place.

With assistance from artist Kip Jones, cook Shannon Myers and millwright John Myers.

Part of Harbourfront Centre's Fresh Ground new works commissioning programme.

June 20: 9:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Landing Under Water
includes two video installations and give-away.
(Ontario Square is directly north of the EnWave Theater)

Driving and Parking:
Due to construction on Queens Quay, driving down poses some challenges but if you go eastbound along Lakeshore to lower Simcoe Road and turn south (towards the water) you will be able to get to a parking garage on the east side of the road. Or if you travel west bound on Queens Quay you can turn south directly into the Harbourfront parking garage.

Venue & Address: 
Ontario Square 235 Queens Quay West Toronto, Ontario
