“Founded in 2007, the award-winning Manifesto Festival of Community & Culture is one of Canada’s biggest celebrations of hip hop culture and beyond – a multi-disciplinary, world-class festival with a positive social and economic impact.
But we’re more than just a festival. Manifesto is a non-profit, youth-powered platform designed to put local artists on the map and unite, inspire and empower diverse communities of young people through arts and culture, year-round.
Our programs aim to cultivate multi-disciplinary artistic and professional development for young people and artists across mediums. Building careers, fostering community connections and fuelling civic pride – all while contributing to the vitality of the city we love.”
Manifesto took over Toronto from June 8 – June 11, featuring art exhibits, dance showcases, summit workshops and panels, and explosive concert series. Not only did we at The Creator Class host a talk with the ever-talented Vashtie at Free Space on the Sunday, but we got to capture the buzz at Echo Beach the day before.
