The 15th annual Kuumba festival presented by TD returns to Harbourfront Centre with two entertaining and educational weekends commemorating both the history and the future of Black culture.
This winter, Harbourfront Centre presents programming that questions the BIG iDEA of witness. Join us Feb. 5-6 and Feb. 12-13, 2011 to witness Black history through audio installations, visual arts, theatre, dance workshops, film screenings, music, comedy, family activities and more.
Kuumba is one of Toronto’s longest-running and largest Black History Month festivals. This year features two jam-packed weekends of fun that the whole family can enjoy. The first weekend explores ideas surrounding the past, present and future of the Black Diaspora, while the second weekend focuses on the fusion of art and history in Caribbean culture.
Kuumba is the Swahili word for creativity and has become synonymous with showcasing the best local and international artists from the African and Caribbean Diaspora. All programming is FREE (except the Ebony & Ivory Comedy Bash $15 & Beat the Street Dance Showdown $10) and runs each day from 1 p.m. into the evening.
All events take place at Harbourfront Centre which is located at 235 Queen’s Quay West. For more information and to purchase tickets, call 416-973-4000 or visit harbourfrontcentre.com/kuumba.
