Unity Festival 2017 kicks off on Thursday, July 13th at Geary Lane with our annual MC / SPOKEN WORD & GRAFFITI EXHIBITION in partnership with R.I.S.E., SKETCH & VIBE ARTS. The night showcases some of Toronto’s most prolific music and visual artists alongside the most promising youth performers selected form UNITY, VIBE ARTS, and SKETCH’S city-wide after school and drop-in programs.

 

This year we are very proud to host two of Canada’s leading artist educators who will lead the exhibition with presentations on how they empower and effect change in individuals and communities. STEPHEN “BUDDHA” LEAFLOOR is an internationally recognized and awarded social worker, celebrated dancer, and founder of BLUPRINTFORLIFE, which has brought empowerment, hope and real social change in Canada’s north and urban centers.

 

DR. AUDREY HUDSON, is an assistant professor at OCAD University where she has developed two courses on the influence of Hip-Hop art and design practices who views the arts as a tool to begin decolonizing education because of the creative platform it provides for historically marginalized communities.
