“Manifesto Community Projects is a non-profit grassroots organization working to unite, energize, support and celebrate Toronto’s vibrant and diverse music and arts community, and find innovative ways of working together towards common goals. We aim to provide a platform and the resources needed to advance the growth of the arts as a tool for positive change, on the individual, community and city level.

The critically acclaimed Manifesto Festival Of Music, Art & Culture is 4 days of incredible events across the city, culminating in a massive free outdoor concert at Nathan Phillips Square in the heart of downtown Toronto. Growing to be the largest and most unique festival of its kind in just two short years, the festival brings together hundreds of artists & performers, and thousands of spectators to showcase our city’s talented arts community and strengthen its foundations by building a collective sense of pride and possibility. Featuring an array of events, from art exhibitions, dance competitions, workshops, free outdoor concerts, film screenings, and more, the festival combines a grassroots, community-focused essence with high production quality.

Manifesto’s point of origin lies in hip hop culture – in its spirit of ingenuity, raw creativity, and people power, but we strive to stay out of boxes and create a platform with the potential to act as a catalyst for cross-pollination, collaboration, and the growth of new forms in this city of wildly talented people.”
