When Ada, Wales and I started this magazine after a girls’ afternoon out, we didn’t know what to expect. As members of the photography, fashion, and entertainment industries, we knew there was a need for a platform to showcase up-and-coming talent. We remembered the struggles of trying to get our foot in the door and how incredible the feeling of our first successes was. Now we’re on Issue 37 and have worked with incredible people from across the globe; we are blessed beyond all measure for the opportunities and for the people we have met. Nothing stays the same and I am so pleased to make a series of announcements. First, our beloved editor Wales will be stepping down from her official duties at VEUX Magazine to pursue a doctorate in education. She will continue to sit on the Board of Directors at AVW Publishing Inc., and will continue to contribute incredible stories and photographs about life in Toronto. We wish her all the best and look forward to calling her “Doctor Wong” in the future. Secondly, we wanted to congratulate Ada on the birth of a healthy beautiful baby boy! The whole family is doing well and we are all so happy for you! In light of these adjustments, VEUX Magazine will be consolidating and simplifying our processes. Starting in September 2017, all email communication and submissions should go through editorial@veuxmag.com. We look forward to the next year and can’t wait to see your incredible submissions! Best, V.H. Editor-in-Chief

Timeraiser 150 By Wales Wong

Toronto is never short of events that mix fun with passion. Timeraiser 150 - the 150 being a note to Canada’s 150th Anniversary - was a gathering of local artists and eager volunteers. Artwork such as paintings and installations were on display at the Harbourfront’s Power Plant on May 24, 2017. The organization first caught my eye at the Honest Ed’s Closing Party, “An Honest Farewell” in February, where they had a space allocated to showcase art that would be available for bidding at this event. For those who have always wanted to add a little flair or character to their space, rather than spending money, they can volunteer hours to registered nonprofit organization of their choice and receive a piece of artwork for all their hard work. The maximum bid for each piece is 150 hours (how fitting of a number) and they have an app to assist with the tracking of pledged hours that have to be completed within one year. Such a collaboration 20 | VEUX | ISSUE 37 - 6TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE


truly highlights the new ways of making one-of-a-kind art accessible to everyone. It was a happening night with beats mixed by the DJ, and food and drinks making their way through the crowds. Smiles were abound as attendants danced to the tunes and mingled with each other. It was an opportune time to pick the creative brains of these artists. 15,863 hours were raised at the event and it looks like next year there will be even more to look forward to as more people hear about this amazing opportunity. I know I, for one, am definitely looking forward to next year’s event! If you are an artist looking to contribute or a volunteer looking to get involved, go to www.timeraiser.ca.
