What else do you need?

 

 

"the blood, sweat, and tears of each new generation."

Toronto's emerging artists spend hours, days, and months of refusal.

Refusal to give up on important work that they know needs to exist and be seen by the world. They do this day in and day out, up against the many forces that would discourage most rational beings.

So when we spend hundreds of hours developing festival programming for the new wave of Toronto, we're really just doing the easy part.
