Long Winter has announced the third event of its 2019-2020 series that will take place at the Gladstone Hotel on January 11. This special edition of Long Winter celebrates the 1 year anniversary of Tea Base, a politicized DIY community art space tucked away in the basement of Chinatown Centre! 
Co-curating art as Tea Base, Hannia Cheng and jes sachse will be transforming the historic Gladstone Hotel into a tapestry of public installations including Tea RoomSmash Corner (Super Smash Brother Ultimate), Mahjong RoomKaraoke Room, and “Eclipse Cypher: Long Lost Winter”, facilitated by Realije and Lost is Found. There will also be an extended exhibition running in the Gladstone Gallery from January 3-12 featuring Ananda Gabo, Florence Yee, Shellie Zhang, Arezu Salamzadeh, Jade Cheng, Christie Carrière. This Long Winter celebration honouring anti-gentrification art and activism will be embedded with accessibility; a resounding community-care takeover of the hotel, featuring disability justice meme screen content by Access Centered Movement and artist Sharona Franklin. 
Musical performances include improvisational experimental DJ and producer Korea Town Acid, Toronto’s premiere hip hop and R&B party hosts and community forum Boosie Fade, the power-pop rock four-piece Kiwi jr., experimental multi-instrumentalist Joseph Shabason, punk psych band BBQ Pope and more.
