Manifesto Festival: House Party
$5 with RSVP (Limited):
Manifesto Festival of Community & Culture co-presented by Aurora and Vancity Community Investment Bank is sending you an invitation to our house warming. At The Drake Hotel. Where we don't technically live and technically it's not a house but technically you're still coming.
Last year the line up got deep, like philosophy deep, like olympic diving deep. In other words, come, but come early.

✦ Accessibility ✦
Manifesto welcomes all community members to our events and we endeavour to work with accessible venues whenever possible. The Drake Hotel main floor is accessible by mobility device and has an accessible washroom. Unfortunately the underground and Sky Yard are only accessible by stairway, but staff will be on hand to access those who request it. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for accessibility requests.
✦ Safer Space ✦
Manifesto believes every person inside the spaces we create, including event goers, performers, artists and event staff, are entitled to an environment free from hate speech, violence, and predatory and discriminatory behaviours.
Harassment means any conduct that is known to cause offence or humiliation, and may include persistent unwanted attention, and deliberate infringement of personal space. Harassment of any kind will be addressed with empathy and urgency.
We encourage you to contact event organizers or security staff if you witness or are on the receiving end of acts of this nature at any one of our events.
✦ Land Acknowledgment ✦
We are grateful to be hosting our events on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat. Tkaronto continues to be home to many other diverse Indigenous communities and we pay our respects to them.
