BOOM Goes Out: BoostR Stage

Every few months Alberta’s social entrepreneurs come together to pitch the best of their ideas to a panel of discerning judges, in the hopes of winning $1,000.00. It’s called BoostR Stage, and on Dec. 2 it was hosted by the Theatre Grand, and featured local non-profits and social companies. What sets BoostR apart from other live-pitch-events is the degree of audience participation. In addition to food and drink, every guest’s ticket gives them $20 to ‘boost’ their favourite business. Interactive, social, and locally supported, BoostR is a great opportunity to invest in those who are changing lives and our society for the better, through the core of their business operations. “Through day-to-day business operations, they inevitably create positive social impact locally or globally – the social and financial outcomes of their organization are tied together.” From a production perspective, we can’t help but love an experience like BoostR. It brings together so many of the elements we look for in an event: entrepreneurship, community-centered, and interactivity. The face that it’s all hosted under the theatrical and historic Theatre Grande roof is just the icing on a production cake.           On Dec. 2, after an inspiring evening of passionate pitches, Mindful Mental Training took home the grand prize, which they will use to further their work on reducing the financial and personal cost of stigma, stress and depression in the workplace.   Want to pitch? Want to boost? Excited? Consider yourself invited. BoostR wants you– the influencer, innovator, community builder, entrepreneur, philanthropist – to join them in celebrating Alberta’s social entrepreneurs. Follow their Facebook page for...

LOOK2015: A Premier Fundraiser for Contemporary Calgary

On Saturday, Nov. 7,  Contemporary Calgary welcomed 700+ guests into the pink-washed halls of the Centennial Planetarium for their second annual fundraiser, LOOK2015. Contemporary Calgary is seeking to establish Calgary first significant public destination for modern and contemporary art. In their new home, the Centennial Planetarium, they will contribute to Calgary becoming a global city of choice by engaging the public in the art of our times. LOOK2015 is their premier fundraising event, which elegantly and proactively exposes Calgarians to a wide range of modern art and artists, and creates an experience that mimics the on-the-pulse nature of the artistic work it displays. The event captured the attention of Canadian Art, the Calgary Herald, CBC’s Eyeopener and Global News. Boom Goes The Drum was honoured to be part of this spectacular event. Photo credit: Kelly Hofer. As guests strode across the pink carpet and into the planetarium, they were met with a visual smorgasbord. The building, which had sat vacant for years, had been transformed from its cement walls and 90’s colour-theme to a modern, L.A.-chic art party, with incandescent lighting and architectural up-lighting making the entire structure pop with vibrancy. Well-heeled attendees sipped hosted wine and nibbled on palate-pleasing canapés, a la Hotel Arts, while perusing the collection of displayed silent auction art pieces, bidding against one another playfully (and sometimes not-so playfully) from their phones and the provided tablets. As guests moved throughout the space, stunning interactive installations by local artists met the crowds with delicious surprise; Tia Halliday’s “Under the skin of a painting” inspired installations featuring dancers stuck in a web of ever-shifting elastics, and caught beneath ‘canvases’,...

Event in Review: LOOK2014

Contemporary Calgary began as a collaboration of visual arts partners, including the Institute of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Art Gallery of Calgary, and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Their mission is to build a global city of choice by engaging Calgary in the art of our times. In 2014 Contemporary Calgary won a bid to move into the very sought after Centennial Planetarium (formerly the Calgary Space and Science Centre), with future plans to open the Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art. With fundraising as their main objective, we began planning for the first inaugural fundraising gala named LOOK2014. On the evening of November 1, 2014, over 600 guests first impression was a long, pink carpet leading from the parking lot to the temporarily branded outdoor loading dock, where a team of greeters awaited, pink umbrellas in hand to ward off the falling snow. Brightly lit with Gobo patterns, incandescent lighting, and architectural up-lighting, this unexpected vibrancy in a forgotten loading dock on the train line, lead guests to one of two entrances. The VIP entrance was an ascending staircase to the top floor where guests were greeted by a line of black clad, turtle-neck wearing event hosts, ready to check them in on a custom designed iPad software system. From there VIP guests emerged into the large, open top floor of the Planetarium to an exclusive cocktail party, with artfully crafted canapés and flowing champagne. In the center of the room an oversized balloon sculpture hovered, changing color as an indication of the progressing program. Emcee Dave Kelly welcomed the VIP attendees and introduced Dr....

Boom Goes Out: House of Nonie S/S 2016 Debut Presentation

Last Thursday, Oct. 22, Calgary’s fashion crowd sat eagerly within the white walls of Studio 122, waiting for another taste of emerging designer Nina Kharey’s bold, clean designs that are quickly making her brand, House of Nonie, a local (and national) favourite. This is not the first time the BOOM team has touted House of Nonie as one-to-watch; in our coverage of PARKSHOW2015 earlier this spring, we noted that House of Nonie’s display was almost obscured by a perma-crowd of enchanted shoppers gathered in front (of which BOOM was most certainly a part). No that we’re surprised- having been mentored by Barbara Atkin of Holt Renfrew, Nina seems to have a firm grasp on what it takes to stand out amidst the clamor or young artists vying for attention, and her collection speak for itself. Simplistic shapes with bold cuts, minimal and architectural; Nina’s peices, much like the designer herself, seem to evoke a sophisticated yet unpretentious aura. The show itself was an elegant reflection of this aesthetic, taking place in Studio 122’s blank-canvas warehouse space in the SE. To shop House of Nonie’s collections and see what the designer is up to, check out her website:...

Boom Goes Out: Sneak Peek of ChefBar’s The Slaughter House

You’re only as good as the food you eat and the company you keep, and if last night was any indication, then we are divine. Under warm lights and the watchful, lychee eyes of a watermelon-skull-turned-punch-bowl, the BOOM team met up with PR mogul Alex Kingcott, stylist Leah Van Loon, and the curator of the evening, blogger, stylist, entrepreneur, and man-about-town, Vincent Law. The purpose of the evening? To taste ChefBar’s Halloween menu, as prepared by their head chef, Shawn Desauliers, for the restaurant’s transformation on Halloween night into The Slaughter House.  As event designers (and theme addicts) we were delighted by the demonic dishes and creepy concoctions crafted by Chef Desauliers and his staff. We enjoyed “brain fluid” cocktails (refreshing notes of watermelon, lime, and a kick of tequila), lemon quinoa salad (in tiny, jack-o-lantern style oranges) and drool-worthy sriracha pork belly (under a “spider web” of black garlic). After dinner, and a mountain of gourmet, browned-to-your-taste s’mores (nick named the ‘”s’mores-pocalypse” by Vincent), Chef Desauliers took us downstairs for a tour of the Gerry Thomas Gallery, catered exclusively by ChefBar. Clean lines, simple aesthetic, and a built-in bar make this a welcome addition to Calgary’s list of modern event spaces.   Deciding to retire from his position as the executive chef at the Fairmont, Chef Shawn Desauliers decided to open a restaurant in Calgary’s bustling centre that would reflect the type of cooking he enjoyed making at home; simple dishes, made with quality ingredients, all put together with the chef’s unique style. While the food and hand-crafted cocktails are obviously a focus for ChefBar, the restaurant also...

Boom Goes Out: Kaleidoscopic Anamalia by Paul Hardy for the Glenbow Museum

On Thursday, October 15, an intimate gathering of masked creatures congregated at the Glenbow Museum to witness the reveal of Paul Hardy‘s exhibit: Kaleidescopic Anamalia, and to celebrate his curatorial debut. Masks depicting animals from all corners of the globe were delivered to attendees in advance, and they certainly rose to the challenge. Truly, it a mascarade to remember. The evening also featured a stunning runway show and auction. Paul Hardy is the Glenbow Museum’s Artist in Residence. Glenbow’s In Residence program invites diverse artists from a variety of disciplines to interact with the museum’s exhibitions and collections and then create a new work based on their discoveries. Past In Residence artists have included Kris Demeanor, Shane Koyczan, Kent Monkman and Corb Lund. READ: Paul Hardy tackles the Museum Experience, Calgary Herald  The exhibit is a true victory – it includes original designs creating specifically for the exhibition clearly demonstrating Paul Hardy’s signature point of view as well as artifacts and artworks from Glenbow’s vaults that have rarely been exhibited. His inspiration comes from our relationship with animals – across time, language, and culture. “Kaleidoscopic Animalia is an exhibition that taps into current interests in fashion, design and visual culture while exploring big ideas about human creativity, cultural values and the universal interest in animals as art, fashion and culture.” Learn more about the exhibit and its upcoming events via Glenbow Museum. The exhibit will be open until May 22, 2016.     #paulhardy at @glenbowmuseum   The big bad wolf… #paulhardy #fashionshow #fashion #style #design #masquerade A photo posted by Shaun Ford & Co (@shaunfordandco) on Oct 15, 2015 at...

LOOK2015: Holt Renfrew Private Shopping Night for Contemporary Calgary

On November 7, 2015 Contemporary Calgary will host hundreds of cultural revolutionaries in the Centennial Planetarium for its premiere fundraiser, LOOK2015, presented by Holt Renfrew, Enbridge, City of Calgary and the Calgary Herald. The goal: raise $1M – enough to set up a ‘Temporary Contemporary’ by the fall of 2016 and begin welcoming people to Calgary’s first significant destination for modern and contemporary art. Generous private donors have stepped up to match donations, dollar for dollar, up to $500,000. All donations will go twice as far! Big, bold, and magnificant. We’re counting down the days. To kickstart that fundrsaising effort, two things happened this week. 1. Pre-bidding began online for LOOK2015’s centrepiece event: the live & silent art auction – one of the biggest to take place nationwide. Take a LOOK. 2. LOOK2015 sponsor Holt Renfrew hosted a Private Shopping Night on October 7 and invited all their friends to come along for the party. Boom was thrilled to produce this event, which attracted hundreds of shoppers to shop the night away in style, and all for a great cause: 10% of all sales were donated to Contemporary Calgary’s $1M goal (and, of course, matched by CC’s donors). Enjoy photos of the event below, and catch that action yourself at LOOK2015 on November 7. TICKETS & INFO.      ...

10 Reasons you NEED to be at LOOK2015

  November 7 marks the return of Contemporary Calgary‘s much anticipated annual fundraiser, LOOK. A hub for culture changers, style savantes, and creative aficionados, this evening of interactive installations and live art is an event for the art of our time. Here’s why you can’t afford to miss out: 1) The art! Contemporary Calgary is one of Canada’s leading galleries for modern and contemporary art, bringing a range of house-hold and in-the-know names to Calgary. Inspiration and wonder will dress the walls of this event. Come with eyes (and imagination) wide open. 2) The building! Contemporary Calgary is moving into the previously uninhabited Centennial Planetarium. An expansive mass of stunning, modern architecture, this venue is going to be the perfect host for the poignant art “C” is known for curating. You won’t want to miss witnessing this raw work in progress. 3) The fashion! This is an art party; no time for fashion wallflowers. Rather than bringing out your LBD standby, take a page out of Mr. Marc Jacob’s book and remember that fringe (as seen on the lovely Ania, above), lamé, and sequins are always a good idea. 4) The auction! Featuring both a silent and live art and experience auction, this rousing experience was a definite highlight from last year. Once-in-a-lifetime trips and jaw-dropping works of art will be up for grabs, hosted by the charismatic auctioneer, Stephen Ranger. 5) The Gopnik! No, Adam Gopnik is not a verb, but as one of the most prolific cultural writers of our time  he may as well be. VIP ticket holders of LOOK2015 will be treated to cocktails, canapés,...

5 Things Your Wedding Dress Consultant Wishes You Knew

Congratulations! Your jewelry collection just got a whole lot more sparkly- you’re engaged! It’s time to embark on the ultimate shopping hunt for the perfect dress, but before you make an appointment (and for the love of couture, please make an appointment), here are five things your consultant will thank you for considering… 1) Choose your invite list carefully There’s a time and a place to have everyone and their cousin gawk at you and tell you how beautiful you look; your wedding! Finding the right dress will be fun, but with too many opinions in your ear you can end up feeling overwhelmed and confused. Invite people that you want to share this experience with, and who you know will provide feedback, but who ultimately will support whatever you feel most beautiful in. 2) Keep your makeup- but keep it light Unless you plan on going bare-faced for your nuptials, you should wear whatever make up you usually wear day-to-day to your appointment. However, try to avoid heavy or oily products, as these can transfer to the gowns when you try them on; your budget should be saved for your dress, not an extra dry-cleaning bill. 3) Wear your hair like it’s the Big Day! You don’t need to book an appointment with your stylist, but if you think you’re going to wear your hair completely up for your wedding, then try to style it similarly for your appointment. An up-do and tumbling curls can make the same dress look dramatically different, especially around the neckline. 4) Choosing the proper undergarments If you’re like most brides, you’re in the...

How to do Bridal Expo like a Wedding Planner

Every September the Calgary Bridal Expo provides an opportunity for Brides-to-be to take in all the best that the wedding industry has to offer. Over 150 of Alberta’s leading wedding industry professionals descend on the BMO center for one afternoon. This is like a dream scenario for anyone that has just undertaken the task of planning a wedding. Having all that the province has to offer under one roof is a great opportunity to not only see what is out there but also it’s a chance to meet the people who will be responsible for helping you make your dream wedding a reality. I like to think of it as speed dating your suppliers. There are a couple of ways to do the show. The first being to simply take it all in and feel inspired by immersing yourself in all the beautiful possibilities. But if you are Type-A, like me, you probably have a very specific list of what you need to accomplish in those few short hours (and believe me, you can get A LOT accomplished). So it is to you, the task oriented go-get-‘em types like me, that I present my tips on how to do Bridal Expo like a wedding planner: Game plan Having a game plan makes all the difference. I like to call it planning to plan. I suggest determining your objectives for the day, ie., Getting options for invites, taste the dessert samples to narrow down your choices or even meet the planners the you have been snooping on the internet. Whatever your list is, come prepared to knock things off of...

Beakerhead 101: 5 Events You Can’t Miss

Where go the giant tin fish, robotic dragonflies, and buildings made of mushrooms, so go we! As self-professed fans of artistic ingenuity, BOOM has been following the incredible growth of Beakerhead from its conception, and is proud to provide production support for this amazing experience this fall. A year of innovation and creativity cumulate every year in the Beakerhead extravaganza of art, culture, science and technology that stuns and inspires Calgarians (and BOOM) without fail. “…More than a schedule of mesmerizing events; it’s a time and place where engineers show their creative sides, and artists get technical, where science hits the street, and everyone gets ingenious”. Sounds like our kind of party. But with dozens of events going on across the city, and only so many hours in a day, how do you choose which explosion of innovation to go see? Luckily for you, BOOM has done all the leg work. Beakerhead 101: Where to go… For a date night!

How Doing Good in the World is Great Business Dave Kelly will be chatting with five inventors, designers, and...

BOOM Goes Out: #OperaFest Opera in the Village – The Mikado

I love Opera, I also love camping. So when the Calgary Opera sets up a tent along the banks of the Bow River and puts on an outdoor operatic spectacle for two weeks every August, I kinda feel like its a match made in heaven. Last Thursday, I got invited to the première of the third year of  Opera in the Village, which to me has become a Calgary summertime tradition. I have to say that more than just producing a complex stage show in a built-from-scratch venue, Calgary Opera is creating a cultural summertime destination in the forever evolving East Village. With daily activities, such as free drumming, Arias, workshops, and even a kids matinee it is worth it even to stroll along the beautifully redeveloped river pathway. Dubbed ‘The Big Top On The Bow’, the impressive tent plays host to this year’s main attraction; The Mikado. A satirical comedy set in two acts by the always campy Gilbert and Sullivan. My only concern about Opera in a tent was – How will I know what they are saying if there are no titles? But my fears were allayed once the show began as it was entirely in English and it is meant to be engaging (even pulling audience members on stage at one point). Jokes about current pop culture abound and there is plenty of poking fun at Calgary. Even something of an appearance by the World’s best Mayor. The fun thing about camping is that the rules are a little different. So is the case here. No need for a suit and tie on the banks of the river. Why not grab a...

BOOM Goes Out: 36th Annual Calgary Folk Music Festival

It’s four in the morning, downtown Calgary. The sun hasn’t yet begun to warm the tops of the skyscrapers, and even though it’s the dead of summer the air still has a cool chill to it. The whole seems quiet, ordinary, yet lining the Princes Island pathway is a strange sight: about a hundred huddled, snoring, Calgarians, sleeping on fluorescent blue tarps, all waiting for the morning moment when they’ll out-speed-walk one another in an attempt to throw their tarps as close to the island’s main stage as possible. Welcome to the thirty-sixth annual Calgary Folk Music Festival, everyone. Over seventy artists from fourteen different countries spent the weekend this July serenading our downtown island with an eclectic mix of keytars, banjo’s, vinyl DJ sets, and full brass bands- just to name a few. Musicians and guests spent their days traveling between smaller stages dispersed throughout the park, where they would see solo shows, or two to three bands would host themed ‘workshops’, jamming on stage in front of hundreds of eager fest-goers. In the evenings, the main stage lit up the grounds with much-anticipated performances from featured musicians, culminating in an evening headliner and an ever-expected, yet somehow-impromptu dance party. Folk Fest has become a celebration of not only music, but the multiculturalism that binds our nation together. A delicious mix of local and international food options available at the park’s entrance delighted Calgary’s palate, and the pop-up market featured wares and works from artisans hailing from all sorts of nooks and crannies of the world. Of course, there’s the music. Whether it was the fiery, daring syncopation...

BOOM Goes Out: Diner en Blanc

Runners slow to a walk, and couples strolling along the Bow river come to a full stop, staring, as strains of Edith Piaf’s iconic “La Vie en Rose” drift from a massive white tent, floating along a summer breeze to ruffle a twelve foot, inflated, ivory installation framing the Peace Bridge. Within minutes a small crowd has gathered along the sidewalk, pointing and smiling, quizzical looks on almost all faces as they look out on the sudden spectacle. However, it isn’t the classic French music or the beautiful pop-up décor that has Calgarian’s lining the Princes Island pathway, staring in wonder; it’s the twenty five hundred guests decked head to toe in shimmering, luminescent hues of white, cream, and ivory, elegantly weaving their way through rows of draped, white picnic tables, as Calgary begins it’s third annual Diner en Blanc. An event as equally rich in style and taste as it is in history, Diner en Blanc (quite literally, White Dinner) traces its roots more over twenty five years a go to- of course- Paris, where a young Fracois Pasquier wanted to invite a group of friends out for a picnic. Not having all met, he recommended they come dressed completely in white, so as to recognize other members of their group. It quickly became an annual event, and from these elegant, Parisian beginnings, Diner en blanc was born. Having now spread to multiple countries, the event maintains a strict invite-only guest list, and a mandatory zero-waste policy, where all attendees must bring in all of their picnic materials, and take them back out at the evening’s conclusion. It...

BOOM Goes Out: Packwood Grand

Twelve hundred of Calgary’s most cultured and fashion forward patrons found themselves donning wide-brimmed, St. Tropez-inspired hats, and cool, airy cravats as they walked the red carpet for the second annual Packwood Grand. A standardbred racing event produced by Tyler Rygus, Cory Edwards, and BOOM friend, Katy Bond, Packwood has been hailed as a “… celebration of old world leisure and sophistication”. Judging by the well-shod and artfully styled guests and event venue respectively, we’d have to say we’re in agreement. For a second time, Packwood has made what was old new again, and coyly charmed Calgarians into enjoying a day of forgotten pleasures and refinement.   Boquet Finale | This year’s best dressed @swervinsterzik @aniab thanks to our judges @styleista_ca @jasonkrell @alyvelji And @crossiron_mills #yyc #ADayAtTheRaces #packwoodgrand A photo posted by Packwood Grand (@packwoodgrand) on Jul 1, 2015 at 3:24pm PDT With a shot, the beautifully groomed standardbreds were off, red dust flying in the cool afternoon breeze as guests watched breathlessly, intently following their favourites around the track. Watching the track was delightful, but watching the attendees was perhaps even more so- as event producers, it was a true treat to see a crowd so completely engaged in an event experience. It’s hard to know who stole the show for the day; the horses, or the volumes of paper roses and explosions of brightly coloured feathers that bedecked the crowd at every turn. Packwood famously includes a style competition- complete with awards- and Calgarians did not disappoint. Haute Couture & High Stakes | This is what it’s all about.

5 Cool Ideas for Canada Day Hosting at Home

July 1st is a home entertaining jem!  Whether you are basking in the sun on a condo balcony or kicking it in the backyard, Canada Day, is an ideal opportunity to host family and friends.  This national holiday is big on patriotism, but should be minimal on hard labour hosting.  We have found some quick hosting ideas that will make your guests feel at home and proud to be Canadian! Our, Derek MacDonald, was on Global News Morning today to talk about these ideas and more on how to host a standout Canada Day Bash.  Be The Lazy Gourmet Here at Boom we love food and some of us even cook (ok, maybe just one of us), but cooking and hosting can sometimes cause a time management problem with you in the kitchen when you should be cracking open a micro beer on the deck.   Canada Day is the perfect occasion to be the lazy gourmet with a grab and go menu that can be picked up from a high quality purveyor like Sunterra and only requires a grill, warm up, or simply put it in your own serving dish. Red, White, and Floral Since this celebration is in your home you can go with minimal decor and florals are the perfect touch. To go with the Canada Day theme you could include national colours, native plants and textures and of course some maple leafs.  Designing on the Edge is our go-to for smartly designed themed florals. Maple Bacon Caesar Everyone has his or her own variation of the ultimate caesar but adding bacon to it is a...

Five Unique Wedding Venues in Calgary

Choosing a venue is one of the most important, and sometimes stressful part of planning a wedding. A venue will be the starting point for the tone you are trying to set for your day. And It will not only act to set the stage but the venue can often become somewhat of a character itself. But not all venues are created equal. Shortlisting possible locations is only the first step in a long process of research and decision making. Here are a few things to keep in mind when starting your search: 1) Have an idea of numbers of guests: Its a good idea to sit down early on and build a list of possible guests. It will help you save time by not visiting the venues that won’t fit your numbers. 2) Have a general idea of the format that you are thinking about. Lots of couples nowadays opt for a more casual approach to their celebration. So if a traditional sit down dinner feels a bit formal for you, then start by looking at places that can accommodate a standing dinner or lounge style reception. 3) Most venues book out anywhere from 8 months to two years if they are popular. As a rule of thumb starting to look 12 months out is typically safe to still have plenty of options. 4) Be thorough in asking questions of the venue and read the fine print before signing a contract. Venues often have strict policies around what they will allow. For example if you want to bring in your alcohol the venue may charge you corkage. Or...

BOOM Goes Out: Monogram Dinner x Design

If you’re design nerds like we are, you’ve been watching the news feeds of lucky attendees at DxD events in Vancouver and Toronto for years. Finally, Calgary got her chance to shine last night at ACAD, and shine she did. The Social Concierge (known in Calgary for events like Diner en Blanc and Packwood Grand) presented the first annual DxD with 6 incredible designers. Designers included were: Amanda Hamilton, Nyla Free Designs, Corea Sotropa Designs, Sally Healy Design, Connie Young Design, Alykhan Velji Designs, Uniquities, and ID Bohemia. “Monogram Dinner by Design brings together internationally celebrated designers and local talent to create three-dimensional dining installations that awe, inspire and delight. These extraordinary dining environments — from the lavish and romantic to the outrageous and whimsical — set the stage for two days of fun and fascination.”  – Website Those tables tho… @dinnerxdesign @acadexperience #yycliving #socialites #creative #design #inspiring #art @jenntait @terisalazar @lbarbetti #dxdcgy #dinnerxdesign A photo posted by Al Farrell (@naveed7) on Jun 11, 2015 at 10:27pm PDT   The reveal of the intricate and innovative dinner-scapes took place last night with a vibrant cocktail party. Tonight, the celebration will continue with an exclusive dinner. Each table will host 10 guests for a truly special dinner experience. The evening supported ACAD and Contemporary Calgary – two incredibly worthy artistic institutions – but the real winners were the designers. We are a blessed city to be surrounded by this much creative talent.       This evening.
