Sometimes shit goes wrong. Sometimes plans fall through. This week on the podcast, our host Darius Bashar forgot to book a guest.

So, he had to make some last minute plans to make sure the show would go on. He called in a favour to one of his oldest homies.

See if you can recognize our guest this week.



“I am a human being evolving everyday. My pronoun is she but you'll hardly catch me in a dress. I am a POC, I am a Muslim but the only religion I practice is love, I am a womxn, I am a Canadian born to immigrant parents. I am awake, I can feel the lives of my ancestors in my blood - I am patient, I am strong and after finally finding the courage to leave my cushy corporate gig behind me three years ago, I am free to pursue my purpose. 

I am, and always will be a self taught multi disciplinary artist inspired by darkness, light and the cracks in between.”

EPISODE 04 - Parul Bansal

Sourcing and leveraging unused, transient spaces in Toronto to host artist residencies. The theme of this residency is art intersecting urbanism. The aim is to put a spotlight on singular, and wasteful, use of spaces due to various restrictions (e.g city zoning) while amidst a housing shortage. Re-imagining space through art and practical use of space for art creation. 

Partnering with real estate developers to find spaces in transition. In addition to art creation, we will be curating the programming for the space. We look forward to hosting city building conversations, artist talks, community events and the finale for the space would be a gallery showcasing art made by the residents.
