TEDxDonMills

Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking video, vibrant performances and mind-blowing conversation...


TEDxDonMills is a community-centric TEDx event. It is a platform, a stage, a venue for dialogue, ideas, and passions; it is a catalyst for change, action, and inspiration.

On Saturday, February 9, 2019, we bring our first event at the world renowned Aga Khan Museum with the theme of Designing Tomorrow.

Our goal is to...

Bring together diverse communities at a meeting place for sharing ideas in an inclusive and tolerant way

Inspire those in and around the Don Mills community to design the future they wish to see

Provide a platform to those who don't normally speak out to share ideas on a large scale and gain confidence and courage to use their unique talents to change the world

MISAQ-E-ISHQ (THE COVENANT OF LOVE)
Date: Aug 19, 2018 06:00PM Price: $40
Includes same-day Museum admission


“Misaq-e-Ishq is an exploration through poetry and music of the dialogue between humanity and divinity.”– Ali Sethi

Dr. Ali S. Asani, Harvard professor, and Ali Sethi, writer and Coke Studio singer, with Noah Georgeson, Grammy-winning musician and producer, chart the evolution of the love metaphor in Indo-Muslim Sufi thought via the poetry of a range of languages, regions, and eras.

This captivating music and poetry event pays tribute to Sufi poets and visionaries including Amir Khusrow, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Shams Sabzwari, as well as to humanist and mystic Moinuddin Chishti, who preached devotion to humankind as a pathway to the divine.

With Asani reciting poetry, and award-winning musicians Sethi and Georgeson leading the accompanying soundtrack, a “galaxy of radical ideas come to light.”

How Can Art Bring People Together? With eL Seed

Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsxQAXxcG_A

For our 4th Annual Lecture, join us as we welcome internationally renowned artist and global thinker, eL Seed, as he talks to us about his personal experience during his public art projects all around the world and how art became a pretext for amazing human experiences. From the streets of Paris and New York, to the Favelas of Rio De Janeiro and the slums of Cape Town, his contemporary approach aims to bring people, cultures and generations together.

*******
Aga Khan Museum continues to challenge and inspire with artist eL Seed

In a world of increasing division, artist eL Seed presents a rare opportunity to bring people together. A French artist of Tunisian descent, he blends Arabic calligraphy and graffiti (in a style dubbed ‘calligraffiti’), creating mesmerizing large scale public murals that transcend borders, language and culture. And in a one-day exclusive engagement, he will bring his global insight to the Aga Khan Museum and share his experiences of using art to bridge perceived divides.

A guy’s guide to wearing jewellery

Jahangir was a very fancy man, even for an emperor. In the many portraits of him commissioned during his reign, the 17th-century Mughal ruler is rarely depicted without a neck full of pearls and jewelled pendants, a turban adorned with emeralds and rubies, and a gilded sword by his side.

One such painting greets visitors to Emperors & Jewels, an exhibition at Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum that explores the Mughals’ spectacular traditions of adornment. The exhibit (which runs through Jan. 27) focuses on the Mughals, warrior-kings who ruled India from the 16th to 19th centuries, and the complex, codified ways they decorated themselves. It also offers lessons for men looking to introduce jewellery to their wardrobes in 2018.

Masterpieces of the East and West

What happens when foreign influences come knocking on your door? Do you turn your back and hold your traditions more tightly? Or do you find a way to adapt new ways and form a unique cultural hybrid?

Those questions, faced by many societies throughout history, are examined within a Middle Eastern context in an intriguing new exhibition at Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum.

Transforming Traditions: The Arts of 19th-Century Iran captures the country at a time when it was being pulled by outside forces, both Western and Asian, even as it sought to consolidate its territories and identity. The resulting conflict is writ large in the fascinating arts and crafts produced under the Qajar dynasty (1794–1925).

California and New York visitors to the Aga Khan Museum and Ismaili Centre, Toronto

"I had previously read some of the speeches of His Highness the Aga Khan regarding religious pluralism and interfaith relations. However, visiting the Ismaili Centre in Toronto was a physical manifestation of the Aga Khan's embrace of artistic excellence, modernity, and the search for God."

Donald E. Miller, Leonard K. Firestone Professor of Religion, Center for Religion and Civic Culture, University of Southern California (USC)

USC's Don Miller, together with Ken Chasen, Senior Rabbi of Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles, Samira Saleh, current President of the Pakistan Arts Council of the USC Pacific Asia Museum, and Sarah Sayeed, Senior Advisor in the Community Affairs Unit of the Mayor's Office of New York City and responsible for citywide Muslim engagement and facilitating culturally responsive agency outreach, visited the Aga Khan Museum and the Ismaili Centre Toronto, on the weekend of October 13-14, 2018. They were accompanied by Suraiya Ali and Raheem Haji, from the Ismaili Councils for the Western and Northeastern United States respectively.

"We were an odd trio of California guests to the Toronto Centre—a Rabbi, a Sunni Muslim, and a liberal Episcopalian layman," reflects Prof. Miller, adding that "It was obviously the warm embrace of religious pluralism by the Ismaili tradition that honored our differences, while simultaneously enabling us to see our spiritual commonalities and connections."

The group was in Toronto to view the Ismaili Centre and the collection of the Aga Khan Museum, where they also attended a concert by Yazz Ahmed, a British-Bahraini trumpet player, jazz musician, and composer, who has released two celebrated albums. She combines electronic effects with music from her mixed heritage to create intoxicating Arabic psychedelic jazz. Special guest Kamancello opened the evening with an improvised performance rooted in traditional cello and kamancheh (a Persian spike fiddle) music.

The visitors had an opportunity to meet with Dr. Henry Kim, the Museum's Director and were fascinated by the objects on exhibit as they were given a guided tour.

'3D Projection Spectacular' among December attractions at Aga Khan Museum

This December, the Aga Khan Museum transforms the perception that museums are only places for dusty artifacts, when its exterior walls become a massive canvas for Light up the Dark: A 3-D Projection Spectacular.

This video show goes beyond the typical holiday light display by using a technology called projection mapping, which will turn the museum’s white granite walls into a 53 m x 13 m screen where art comes to life.

You might see a flower from a 12th-century painting blossom across the walls, or the building’s granite blocks might slide open to reveal a scene from 16th century India, or you might a catch one of the museum’s recent live flamenco performances projected in a hologram-like style.

Curator for the project Amirali Alibhai, head of performing arts, says it’s a way for the museum to combine both the tangible items in the collection with the intangible quality of the museum’s mission — to connect cultures through art.

“It’s like the walls open,” says Alibhai, “making what is contained inside visible outside, showing a range of art, performances, and programming.”

The show runs Dec. 27-30 and organizers invite visitors to warm up inside with hot drinks, and to enjoy three more free displays on throughout the month.
