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. presents Ladies First Cypher presents the MANIFESTO Festival Ladies First Cypher

TruDynasty's trip to Trinidad for Carnival 2013

 TruDynasty has organized a trip to Trinidad for Carnival 2013. Check out the description below and their facebook event page for more details.
You have asked and now you shall receive!! TruDYNASTY Carnival is finally organizing a trip to Trinidad for Carnival!


You will be staying on the tropical island of Trinidad for 8 days and 7 nights. You will depart on Thursday February 7th and return Thursday February 14th.


You will be staying in the top hotel on the island. The HYATT is a five star hotel located right by the water which always sells out by summer. Your stay will include FREE wi-fi in your room and complimentary breakfast buffet at the beachfront restaurant. Up to 4 people can stay in each room but please be advised that the beds are double beds not queens (the difference is only 6 inches in width not lengthy). Once you see the hotel you will fall in love!! Check it out! And a bonus: It's walking distance to everything!! No need to rent a car :)


You will be flying with Caribbean Airlines out of Toronto to Port of Spain, Trinidad. In order to keep the cost lower the outbound flight does connect in Jamaica however it is only for an hour so once you get off the plane you can stretch your legs, use the bathroom and get ready to board and head out again. The flight returning home is a direct flight.
Here is the flight schedule:

Depart Toronto Feb 7 @ 2:10pm
Arrive in Kingston, Jamaica @ 6:20pm
Depart Kingston @ 7:40pm
Arrive in Port of Spain @ 11:10pm (please keep in mind that it will be 10:10pm our time which is why it looks like the flight is longer)

Depart Port of Spain, Trinidad Feb 14 @ 2:35pm
Arrive Toronto 7:40pm


Prices are per person and are non-refundable. If you are unable to make it after you have started paying you can find a replacement up to 30 days prior to departure. Once the names have been submitted to the airline (30 days prior/Jan 6) they will not accept any changes.
