Oasis Skateboard Factory POP-UP SHOP at The Baitshop Opening Party Fri. Jan. 27, 7-9PM

An invitation from a recent TorontoTheBeter member, Oasis Skateboard Factory:


OASIS SKATEBOARD FACTORY POP-UP SHOP @ The Baitshop
Opening Party: Friday, January 27, 7:00 - 9:00 PM
__________________________________________________

Come out and support the Oasis Skateboard Factory, Toronto’s first skateboard design and street art focused high school reengagement program. At the OSF students earn all their credits by running a community based entrepreneurial business where they learn hands-on to build skateboards, design original custom graphics, work with local artists and community partners, market and display their work and receive financial remuneration.

The OSF POP-UP SHOP is the culminating project in a semester-long business course developed by the OSF in partnership with The Baitshop, Toronto’s premiere screen-printing/skate shop and gallery. The innovative OSF/Baitshop Business Program is designed to help youth earn credits and develop transferable creative, employment and entrepreneurial skills.

At the opening party students will be selling their hand-made skateboards and longbords with custom graphics, as well as having a sample sale of their street wear logo T-shirts to launch their personal company brands. To give back to the community, a portion of the sales of Oasis Skateboard Factory merchandise will be donated to a local charity.

from Jan. 27 through Feb. 26, 2012
