IndieGoGo Campaign for A Safe Space – The Film

“Have you been looking for a way to engage against discrimination?

Writer Samih Nassar teamed with producer Lindsay Ogus and director Michael Flax to create a film that could channel our passion against today’s growing discrimination. We wanted to create a fresh narrative that reflects Canadian diversity. By supporting A Safe Space, you support not just a film but also a social movement. We are providing a platform for Muslim females in the arts to share their work and their stories with new audiences, and using the film to show why such a platform is necessary.

We spoke to dozens of Muslim artists about their experiences, and sent the script out to them to make sure we made a truly authentic film. In our campaign video, they tell us why this film needs to be made. Make sure to watch our campaign video!

There are two ways to help:

1) Contribute financially – even small contributions raise our popularity and give us more visibility on Indiegogo!
2) Post to Social Media or Email your friends (see links below) – in the end, the more people hear about us, the more likely we are to meet our target!

For full details on the crowdfunding campaign, check out! For even more behind the scenes photos, bios of our cast and crew, and news from the film, check out our Facebook page at!

Thank you for supporting me, and supporting A Safe Space!

Mosaic Mural Fundraising Campaign (East End Arts, Toronto)


East End Arts needs your support to complete a community mosaic mural at Danforth and Coxwell this summer. We need to raise $8,500 to meet our $50,000 goal. Every dollar donated will go to paying artists, mural materials, and related project costs. Please Donate Now!

This August, talented ceramics artist Cristina Delago will lead a group of emerging artists in creating a mosaic mural that will beautify the concrete wall facing the Green P lot at 1208 Danforth Avenue. The mural is one of several improvements happening in 2016-17 that respond to the needs identifed in 2014 when the Danforth East Community Association asked the community to Reimagine the Laneway. Join us (the TTC, Toronto Parking Authority, City Councillor Janet Davis & East End Arts) onsite to see full details of proposed improvements on August 3rd.

The mosaic mural will cost $50,000 to produce. Thanks to generous donations from StreetARToronto and Toronto Parking Authority, we have raised 85% of our goal. We still need to raise $8,500 by August 31, 2016 in order to complete this important contribution to the community for September 2016. East End Arts is a registered charity.

We will also be accepting material donations onsite as of August 3, and inviting members of the community to come help with mural assembly on a volunteer basis.”

Pass the Mic: Bridging the Gap Between the Old and New School

Since the first Knowledge Conference in 2013, this series of learning events allows HoP to gather cultural innovators and professionals to learn and network in a community of artists. Including panel discussions, master classes, workshops, a keynote speaker, and a wind-down networking evening, this year will feature sessions for professional development of Hip Hop music professionals. The focus will be on professional development for entrepreneurs, mentorship, and how to attract paid opportunities.

Location: Arts Court, 2 Daly Avenue


The House Of Paint is asking for your support!

“Over five days each September House of Paint throws the biggest urban culture jam in the Nation’s Capital – celebrating and elevating hip hop arts and culture.”

The HoP Festival couldn’t be as successful without their amazing dance floor. “It all started with a small dance floor built by community members for the first B.B.Q celebration; that small dance floor has grown to become the focal point of the festival.”
Unfortunately a violent Canadian winter storm destroyed their storage space and subsequently, ripped apart the best dance floor they ever had.

Visit their indiegogo campaign to see how you can help supporting the success of this festival, who focuses on youth engagement and community development through the creative power of art!”
