Unity Festival 2019 – Sep 27-Sep 28 – Northern Contemporary Gallery – 1605 Queen St W, Toronto
Going into its 12th consecutive year, the Unity Festival–Unity Charity’s annual flagship event and Canada’s largest youth hip hop festival– continues to be a dynamic, multi-disciplinary Hip Hop arts festival for youth that takes place at unique urban venues in Toronto’s vibrant downtown core. Similar to Unity’s work with youth year-round, the Unity Festival highlights Hip-Hop’s power as an agent of artistic progression, community building and social change, with a focus on the empowerment of our future’s most vital asset: youth.
The Unity Festival provides an opportunity for emerging youth artists to present high-quality performances alongside established artists, and creates an accessible platform for youth to engage in arts-based competitions, workshops and exhibitions. Youth also benefit from opportunities to learn from artists who not only expertly teach their craft, but also generously tell their own compelling stories of struggle, self-reflection and triumph through hip hop.
With this in mind, we’re excited to introduce this year’s festival theme:
Unity Is Hip Hop…Unity is Community…Unity is Youth
Join us on Friday, September 27th and Saturday, September 28th for the 2019 Unity Festival at The Northern Contemporary Gallery located inside the historic Parkdale Theatre building at 1605 Queen St. West.
The Northern Contemporary Gallery aims to promote Toronto’s already-thriving art community, providing greater exposure for artists to new markets and houses a large performance space where Unity and its partners will be featuring Hip-Hop, R&B, and Spoken Word artists, major dance exhibitions and battles, a multi-media exhibition featuring a number of contemporary visual artists, as well as a Silent Disco.
