Today marks a special moment in Toronto’s music, arts and culture history. Fast-approaching 10 years of serving Toronto through their innovative mix of talent incubation, youth engagement and cultural programming – two of the city’s youth arts and culture heavyweights are finally coming together to realize a grand vision for the future of Toronto arts and culture. The Remix Project and Manifesto just announced the launch of the Convergence Campaign, which will create a dynamic new permanent home for both organizations and an accessible cultural hub for artists, arts administrators and organizations from across the city.

“Manifesto and The Remix Project are thrilled to partner with The Daniels Corporation to create our new home in Daniels Waterfront – City of the Arts. This space will become the centre of gravity for youth, arts, culture and creative industries in Canada. Daniels’ investment in this project is not simply an investment in our organizations, but rather an investment in Toronto’s future as a global cultural leader.” – Che Kothari (Manifesto) & Derek “Drex” Jancar (The Remix Project) Co-Chairs of the Convergence Campaign

Convergence

With the generous support of The Daniels Corporation, the space will be part of the just-announced Daniels Waterfront – City of the Arts project – a pioneering vision for a master-planned, mixed-use community coming to the corner of Queens Quay and Lower Jarvis that will amplify Toronto’s growing role as a global cultural leader. The space will combine administrative offices; a public performance theatre and cinema; a recording studio with affordable opportunities for diverse communities; a studio dedicated to photography, videography, and dance; accessible venue space with affordable prices for gatherings and events; video editing and post-production suites; a gallery; a community café; as well as access for artists and young entrepreneurs to obtain business and legal support, career guidance and professional consultation from some of the city’s key leaders and instigators. It will be a game-changing place for Toronto’s current and future arts and culture leaders to connect, cultivate and collaborate that responds to directly to the unique challenges faced by the sector.

Through the Convergence Campaign, The Remix Project and Manifesto’s combined creativity and drive will supercharge Toronto’s cultural sector, and safeguard the sustainability of these two vital organizations for years to come.

Toronto-based singer Alexandria releases her debut single and video for “Stay”, a song about love, drug abuse and addiction. Heavy topics for a first release, but take in her lyrics and her sound and feel what she feels.

Alexandria

“This single involved a lot of emotions, I had the option to create a video that was typical – a man and woman’s relationship – but I wanted to do it another way and highlight a relationship within a family”, says Alexandria. “The visuals lift the song and vice versa, they both work really well together, through this song I wanted to evoke emotion in my audience and get them intact with their feelings and I believe it does just that.”
