For more than 20 years, Harbourfront Centre’s Kuumba has sparked discourse and conversation around current and historical debates within the African-Canadian community. Kuumba 2017 continues this tradition, creating awareness and dialogue and celebrating contemporary and historical forms from across the African diaspora. 

With so many great events, we’ve expanded Kuumba over two weekends! This year, we explore the themes currently affecting our global community including Black Lives Matter, Women’s Empowerment and The Invisible Majority. We also focus on women’s voices by showcasing musicians, filmmakers and artists who bring attention to the stories of women of colour in Canada.
