tranzac fundraiser...soullllll

I took this photograph of Toronto's Tranzac club from the north this Sunday just past. On this afternoon, the Tranzac was hosting a Christmas crafts fair, hence the Santa outside the door.

 

Located at 292 Brunswick Avenue, just south of Bloor and literally in the middle of The Annex, the Tranzac has an interesting history as a venue for multiple communities.

 

The Tranzac is a non-profit member supported community organization with a focus on promoting arts, music and theatre. The TRANZAC (an abbreviation of Toronto Australia New Zealand Club) also works to promote and support Australian and New Zealand culture in Toronto.

 

The Tranzac is open to the public and is home to music and community theatre most nights of the week in our intimate Southern Cross Lounge and our larger Main Hall both with bar service. The Main Hall features a curtained stage and a professional sound system. The smaller Tiki room is available for meetings, performances, poetry readings and other intimate events. The public may rent our club facilities – recently our Main Hall has been packed for music festivals, film festivals, plays, book launchs, CD launches and other concerts and as well as private events such as parties, Bar Mitzvahs, and craft shows.

TRANZAC is the abbreviation of the Toronto Austalia New Zealand Club. Its roots date back to the year 1931, when a small group of Australians and New Zealanders met in the Bay Street (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) offices of J.W. Collins, the New Zealand Trade Commissioner.

 

Like so many newcomers to Canada, the group wanted to retain a part of their national identity and they formed a group primarily to welcome other Australian and New Zealand newcomers and to help meet the needs of their fellow countrymen by providing social activities, fostering fellowship and goodwill and promoting a better understanding of Canada.

 

In December 1950, a formal meeting of the group at the King Edward Hotel resulted in the official birth of an Australian New Zealand Club in Toronto. By 1964 the membership had increased to 260 and official club premises were rented on Sherbourne Street.

 

In 1966 the club was incorporated under the name TRANZAC and the hard working and enthusiastic committee set about working toward securing its own permanent premises. Membership and activities increased and the club moved from establishment to establishment to accommodate members and their friends. Finally, in 1971 all the hard work of the committees and support of the members became a reality and the club was in a position financially to obtain its own premises. TRANZAC moved to its present location at 292 Brunswick Avenue in October 1971.
