I spoke on 3 panels this week, and slept twice as much as usual last night. Possible correlation? ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Seriously grateful for every opportunity to share and help students or aspiring entrepreneurs and activists. Thank you to @grassroots_growth @volunteertoronto @thepspc @communitech @getconnected_17 for having me!

Donโ€™t give up, just re-think ๐Ÿ’ก

Blog post in bio ๐Ÿ‘

Always happy to speak at events like this โ€” a reminder of all the awesome, dedicated people out there doing meaningful work! Starting a grassroots organization is never easy, there's so many changes and challenges that come up when taking your project from #IdeatoAction . I've been through it and have witnessed it in dozens of organizations, all with great intentions yet sometimes a lack of guidance or connections.
Thanks for having me #GrassrootsWeek ! The @grassroots_growth team is awesome, @volunteertoronto.

Bansky's graffiti restored and put on display in this new building in Toronto. Another artist created the display, which is why you see double: the one on the right is a reflection. Go see it in the PATH walkway. ๐Ÿ‘€

As reported by @globeandmail:

Distinctive #graffiti by the famed British street artist #Banksy appeared suddenly on the faรงade of a vacant office building near Toronto's waterfront several years ago.

The stencil painting of a policeman or security guard clutching the leash of a muzzled pink balloon dog was one of seven pieces the elusive artist created on downtown walls during a visit in May, 2010. Seen by some as vandalism, several were immediately painted over while others were rendered unrecognizable by local graffiti artists:

But the uniformed man and his balloon dog โ€“ which was also tagged โ€“ met a different fate. When a real estate developer bought the building from the provincial government a year later, officials ordered demolition crews to carefully salvage and store the limestone slabs. "It's an important piece. I think we all recognized that pretty early on," said @JaredMenkes, vice-president of high-rise residential at @MenkesLife, which co-owns the site.

The artwork, which has been restored to its original state, was recently installed in a second-floor PATH pedestrian walkway in a new 35-storey condo, office and retail building on the same plot of land, at 1 York St., just south of the Gardiner Expressway.

Banksy, who has never confirmed his identity, is known for his politically charged critiques of capitalism, authority, poverty and the art establishment. Indeed, the officer and dog piece was created on the former headquarters of the Ontario Provincial Police just a month before #Toronto hosted the G20 Summit. #Menkes

Happy St. Joseph's Day, and Happy Birthday to Nonno Giuseppe! #Zeppoli for everybody. Homemade vs. Bakery taste test to follow.

Productivity mode: on

Every person and every business has problems and struggles, nobody's operating at 100% everything at any given time. They're just not typically broadcast visually on a 10 foot screen in public.
In this case I'd recommend that @td_canada contact their system admin or technical support group for further assistance, as the blue screen says.

Today we put up with endless sirens driving by combined with drastic temperature changes from boiling hot to freezing and back all in one day at the studio. But we still got things done. Thanks everyone. Shoutout to the @nowcreates team and to the tape holding my window shut. .

The thing with New York City is that we didn't need jackets for some of the trip, and now here in #Toronto it's allegedly a blizzard, even closer to spring? โ„๏ธ Evidence in #NowVlogs link in my profile ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ
