BLMTO Presents: Love is the Cure #SaveWatah Fundraiser

Family,

On Saturday December 3rd, join us for a LITUATION! Thats right, BLMTO is bringing the heat for you! We love you so much, we are throwing you a party. Time to unwind,recline, and catch the wickedest whine! Ah ah Ah!

We have curated a performance showcase of Toronto's freshest artists in a dope array of artistic expressions from dance, singing, spoken word, ciphers, live painting, rap, theatre and story telling - a fire line-up to celebrate our Toronto artistic community that will turn into a 19plus party with 4 of Toronto's hottest Dj's spinning us into the night.

ARE YOU EXCITED! You know its only a #DressToImpress flex. Do you feel us?!

This event is about community! We are fundraising money to secure the Watah Theatre, which is a space that has nurtured the growth of hundreds of artists across race, gender, class and orientation under the artistic direction of world renowned black genius Dbi Young. For more info: http://www.thewatahtheatre.org/

Db'i has worked to develop the most powerful artists in Toronto that have profoundly impacted our community through their talent and contributions to our movement. We are honoring and celebrating the incrdible impact D'bi has on our different black communities, as we support the only infrastructure that Dbi has created within this city which develops black artists intentionally.

The Watah Theatre is in danger of closing due to consistent lack of funding which is reflection of the ways in which black art is consumed and funded in the Toronto arts community. As we are aiming towards to goal of fundraising 15k to secure the funds to keep the school running, we are advocating for the Toronto arts community to step up and support black artist in this city meaningfully. We are calling for systemic changes in funding and support for black artists to be able to continue to create without having to worry about being resourced. Funding for equipment, space, skill development is there, it is just not funded or funelled into our communities.

JOIN US FAMILY! This event will have multiple opportunties to fundraise money for the Watah Theatre! We have vendors, raffles & give aways, silent auctions and lots of exciting things to unveil - stay tuned! We got some dopeness cooking for you!
