Brooke's December Picks

Brooke (she/her) began Likely General in 2013. She fills the shop by selecting all artists, makers & goods, programs all workshops & events, and curates all exhibitions in the Likely General Gallery. Outside of running Likely, she is a poet and sound maker studying end of life care.

Favourite shop music: Currently listening to my friend Tam on repeat The Weather Station and a lot of Greenflow. I love making playlists to listen to at the shop too: remember we can peel the grape

Community organization to support this month (and always): The Parkdale Community Foodbank works tirelessly to help our community and they could always use fresh produce and donations. Seeds of Hope (a longstanding Toronto org working with the homeless and under-housed) + Community Fridges GoFundMe to Winterize

Favourite Likely General memory: I love our annual Kids Art Show. Seeing bright minds under 12 support each other without competition to raise money for a cause of their choice reminds me to listen, to slow down, to trust in every process, to lean into our source of real hope for the future - the kids, and their ideas.
