Long Winter announces festival & music conference at the end of the month!

Long Winter is pleased to announce the second part of its co-production with Paris, France presenter La Station – Gare des Mines. Together Apart is a first-ever festival and conference to connect DIY communities in international collaboration and exchange. November 26 and 27 events include live shows in Paris and Toronto, international panels, a research conference focused on DIY spaces, and local workshops to build inter-collective capacity.

The bi-city artistic program includes two nights of multi-venue live music and art at St. Anne’s church (Dundas West) in Toronto and an IRL / URL cross-stream virtual party, with back-to-back sets by DJs in Paris and Toronto,   co-produced with Collectif Ascidiacea and  Club Quarantine. Featured artists include leading techno-industrial duo Orphx (Hamilton), experimental jazz pop band Bernice, electronic producer and vocalist New Chance, post-punk electro-noise act Odonis Odonis, Afro-fusion multidisciplinary artist Asuquomo (Ottawa), a dance party by ISO Radio, and more. Co-curators include Strangewaves (Hamilton), Debaser (Ottawa), Unit 2, Not Dead Yet, Sou Sou, amongst others listed below.

Two days of conferences and workshops will bridge DIY and underground communities across Ontario and France, and offer cross-sector dialogue between local presenters, international urban planners and policy makers. Topics include equitable trade routes, sustaining DIY spaces (The Vera Project, Seattle), multi-space networked models (Trans European Halles), local resource sharing platforms, building a career path from the DIY hip hop scene, and more.
