OSF POP-UP SHOP @ The Baitshop
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.
The OSF POP_UP SHOP will be open for business at The Baitshop from Jan. 27 through Feb. 26, 2012 (Mon-Sat 12-6, Sun 12-5)
358 Dufferin, Suite 117 (Entrance off Milky Way Lane)
