About Ladyfest Toronto Ladyfest Toronto is a four-day arts, culture and music festival.
We are a non-profit, grassroots, do-it-yourself collective who seek to promote urban feminism. We work from a framework that is pro-feminist, trans-inclusive, pro-diversity and anti-oppressive.
We seek to build community among Toronto’s feminist businesses, artists, activists and academic community. We believe that art is a powerful form of resistance and hope to incite dialogue about contemporary feminist issues in our city.
We will be providing a venue for women to express themselves and showcase their work free of sexism, classism, racism, and homophobia, as well as other forms of oppression.
We believe that politics can be fun and hope to facilitate political action and create tools for feminist networking at our annual event. We will proudly showcase the talent and actions of both local and international women. Ultimately, we hope Ladyfest Toronto inspires women everywhere to organize themselves and create similar spaces that allow women’s creative works to be seen and heard, as other Ladyfest’s have for us.
