Manifesto Festival of Community & Culture was created after a small group of local artists, community organizers, and event promoters gathered at Toronto City Hall to discuss ideas for establishing a new urban arts platform. Identifying the challenges they faced, those young leaders pooled their passions, talent and resources to create opportunities to showcase local artists and organizations. Since then, Manifesto has become a non-profit, youth-powered platform designed to put local artists on the map and unite, inspire and empower diverse communities of young people through arts and culture, year-round.
