SPECIAL EVENTS: UNITY FESTIVAL

Every year, Unity Charity presents a 4-Day Festival in Toronto that, in the very essence of its conception, showcases the brilliant talent of not only our beloved artists and our artistic community, but also the youth who have worked extremely hard all year in our school programs. This is an event that is even greater in complexity than our usual ones, and we are proud of our dedicated team of volunteers who have supported us in making this annual event outstanding.
Our Festival will require assistance in all of the following areas:

  • information table
  • merchandise sales
  • backstage
  • set-up/tear-down
  • door/ticketing
  • food distribution
  • promotions and social media
