It’s not an exaggeration to say that Toronto is home to some of the most creative people on this planet. As a platform, we’re proud to be able to continuously showcase talented, creative people at our various events. This time, we focused on female artists as we felt it was due time to give women the spotlight. It’s exciting to say that VIRTUE was exactly what we envisioned. The event created an energy that was filled with so much love and appreciation. Smiles on all the faces in the room as they connected with that piece of art, that lyric, that note, that energy.

To set the vibe we had DJ Bambii as our selector.
And a line up of female artists that included a painter, a poet, a singer and an MC.

With all the talent in the room it wouldn’t have been the same without the support of everyone that came out to appreciate female artists. Learn more about the featured artists in our Q&A’s where they discuss their art, the Toronto art scene and feminism from their perspective.
