A dancer with a new love for choreography.
Showing expression through movement and sharing those feelings with others has given her a drive towards choreography. We talked to Stephanie about the past year, the hardships and the slow times...
Today we introduce Jamila Pomeroy. Jamila is an internationally-published, award-winning writer/journalist, a director, artist and creative entrepreneur, based in Vancouver, Canada. Outside of writing, Jamila is the founder and creative director of Canada’s first Black-owned print lifestyle magazine, Avocado Toast Post.
As a Kenyan-Canadian writer and filmmaker, Jamila's aim is to help facilitate the taking back of BIPOC narratives and empower minorities and people of varying socio-economic statuses through storytelling. Going hand-in-hand with this, is her strong passion to tell real, raw and authentic narratives, that give characters the ability to live outside of exhausted character archetypes. As a multi-generational hereditary storyteller on both sides of her family, Jamila sees film and editorial as a way to honour and pay homage to her Kenyan, Newfoundlander and Mi’kmaq heritage, while helping to shape a new generation of media.
We caught up with Steve to talk photography, his community and the direction he's taken his work...
Meet Canadian musician and songwriter Zane Coppard.
Zane has been surrounded by music from an early age, picking up drums when he was 8; sessioning in bands, taking him all over the country and being one half of Smash Boom Pow with his brother. In more recent years, Zane has been working on a solo project and we’re stoked for his new album that comes out on July 30th.
Sean Kesterson, AKA Alimo, paints with the effortless grace of a noserider, and his pieces pull you into the scenes he creates — whether it’s a hidden surf spot poking out of the trees, or a pair of snowboarders scrambling up a peak.
We teamed up with Sean to create an exclusive pair of naturally-dyed socks in a sun-drenched yellow colorway that captures his fun-loving attitude, and a handful of limited-edition prints titled “Party Wave” that reflect Arvin’s collective approach to making the world a better place.
