Manifesto 2013



Manifesto is a non-profit grassroots organization working to unite and energize Toronto's music and arts community and find innovative ways of working together towards common goals.
In 2011, the critically acclaimed Manifesto Festival Of Community & Culture featured 11 days of incredible events across the city, culminating in a massive free outdoor concert at Yonge & Dundas Square in the heart of downtown Toronto. Growing to be arguably Canada’s largest hip hop festival in just five years, Manifesto brings together hundreds of artists & performers with thousands of attendees,to showcase our city’s talented arts community and strengthen its foundations, by building a collective sense of pride and possibility.

Through art exhibitions, dance competitions, workshops, free outdoor concerts, film screenings, networking opportunities, seminars, a pop-up arts market, and much more, Manifesto creates powerful and engaging experiences, and provides opportunities for young artists to grow.

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.
