Events this week

UrbanArts will be having its 30th-anniversary Annual General Meeting this week, on March 6. It should be exciting: UrbanArts recently announced that it will be a program partner for the Weston Common hub.

The North York Women’s Centre will be hosting the Weston Mount Dennis Women’s Entrepreneurship Festival on International Women’s Day (Thursday, March 8th), at the Learning Enrichment Foundation.

The Weston-Mount Dennis Women’s Entrepreneurship Festival is a one-day event that will celebrate diverse women’s enterprises and promote entrepreneurship as a means of gaining economic independence, a critical component of women’s empowerment locally and internationally. It includes workshops, panels, local women-led food vendors and information tables.

The York West Active Living Centre is looking for two volunteers to staff its board of directors. Applications are due March 9.

The Mount Dennis Library will be having STEM afternoon camps, starting at 2 pm during March Break (from Monday, March 12th to Friday, March 16th)

Interested in finding out how to code, build robots and circuits, and create your own 3D objects? Pop-Up Learning Labs will be visiting Mount Dennis branch this March to offer STEM afternoon camps for children aged 9-12. Explore new technologies, learn all about coding and circuitry, and get the chance to print your own 3D objects! Register in person by visiting the Mount Dennis Branch, or by calling at 416-394-1008.

Tickets are still available for Frontlines annual fundraising dinner on April 28. It’s a blast.
