For immediate release
Toronto, ON—The annual Roots Rhymes and Resistance concert organized by Ugnayan ng Kabataang Pilipino sa Canada/Filipino Canadian Youth Alliance is back for its fourth year here in Toronto. This year’s concert is titled, “Taking Back Our Future” and will, once again, be held at the University of Toronto’s Hart House Music Room. Doors open at 7:30PM and performances will start at 8:00PM.
Historically an arts and cultural venue to express youth talents and capacity to build a culture of resistance, this year’s concert will be no different. Impacted by economic restructuring, the future of youth in Canada has been deemed uncertain. But for youth of colour, where the cutbacks to education, employment and general social services impact their communities most, this concert provides a necessary venue for the collective expression of all youth ready to stand up and take back their future.
It will be an evening filled with talented acts and a reminder that progressive arts & culture is a much needed fuel when taking our revolutionary paths towards social change.
This year’s production includes musical and mini multi-media theatrical performances from local Filipino Canadian youth, along with a variety of other musicians and performers.
