PULP: paper art party returns

Ever partied in a room full of garbage? PULP: paper art party 2015 is a fundraiser designed to examine the current lifecycle of waste materials and investigate alternative uses. Following last year’s tremendously successful party, PULP promises to reach new heights.

PULP: paper art party 2015 is an evening combining installation art, live music, dancing, and conversation. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, May 23, 2015 at Jam Factory Co. located in Toronto’s South Riverdale neighbourhood at 2 Matilda Street. Doors open at 9:00pm.

This year’s music lineup features The Boxcar Boys, A Little Rambunctious, and, closing out the night at 1:00am, Toronto’s own master of Electro Swing: DJ Medicineman.

The state of our environment is an incredibly important topic, but PULP isn’t about lectures or presentations – we want to get people dancing, talking, playing and creating. Inside a unique two-storey space, artists will introduce guests to sustainable design through reclaimed material installations in an engaging social setting. Over 40 artists and designers submitted over 20 proposals to build installations and furniture out of reclaimed material and create a paper playground in Jam Factory. Video art and poetry dealing with sustainability will be projected during the event.

Among the installations coming to the party are an interactive wall made of cardboard, live dance performance in a paper environment with paper costumes, cootie catchers sculpture, paper boats, and many other exciting treats.

PULP is about community and sustainability. That’s why the funds raised and the expertise of the designers will be used to support a charity in Toronto every year. This year, funds raised will be donated to the Artists’ Network, a local art organization known for its Riverdale Art Walk event.

On offer are rich flavours from the Lake Of Bays Brewing Company, including a draft station and a variety of other drinks.

Please note that this is a 19+ event. For more information and updates on this year’s event, please visit http://pulpartparty.ca.
