In honour of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024), Bravo Niagara! presents Voices of Freedom Festival from September 28 to October 6, 2017.
Voices of Freedom Festival (formerly North Star Festival: Voices of Freedom) will commemorate and celebrate Canada's significant Black history and highlight the ongoing journey to freedom. Through the arts, Bravo Niagara! strives to foster intercultural dialogue and raise awareness of the historic and cultural contributions made by people of African descent.
The festival will include educational musical performances, symposia, and free interactive programming for youth. Stay tuned for the full festival schedule!
Bravo Niagara!'s Voices of Freedom Festival will also raise awareness of the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake's Voices of Freedom Park, an experiential art installation commemorating Niagara-on-the-Lake's significant Black history, which is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
