106 and York Urban Arts Youth Festival is an annual multi-disciplinary youth arts festival that happens in Toronto’s North-West communities. Now in its fifth year, this community event has grown from a one-day production, to a two-date festival, celebrating the talent of performers and visual artists from across the city. Headliners for this year’s events include JD Era (signed to the label of Raekwon, of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan), Juno-nominated Producer/MC Rich Kidd, one of Toronto’s most exciting new vocalists, Shi Wisdom, and more. The festival is broken down into two main events on August 11th and 31st.
Culture Shock, presented by UrbanArts and 106 and York is going down Saturday August 11th, 2012 from 1-8PM at Weston Road Farmer’s Market. Shi Wisdom is the headlining performance for this free outdoor community concert.
