Current Season

2021-2022 Season

Season Overview

This season is dedicated to opening up, both literally and metaphorically. Breaking norms, creating opportunities, and celebrating successes.

X Avant XVI: You In Mind called up to reframe the belief of “all are welcome” and take action towards building for you/ with you in mind.

X Avant XVI: You In Mind gathered Artists, musicians, poets, videographers, community leaders and organizations together to collaborate and build a brighter future. This iteration of X Avant prioritized artists and the communities in which they are rooted in order to pivot from "all are welcome here" to more meaningful and intentional forms of social engagement. This festival was built to listen, process, and artistically empower the diverse communities in Toronto.
