2016 Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts, May 1-14


Mayworks 2016 posterThe Mayworks Festival is an annual multidisciplinary arts festival that celebrates the culture of all working peoples. Founded by the Toronto and York Region Labour Council, Mayworks has been uniting art and labour since 1986 by showcasing the cultural production of workers and their artist allies. Mayworks’ artistic vision is specifically guided by an equity policy that allows for representation of First Nations people, people of colour, queer and trans people, people with disabilities and young people as audiences and artists. Mayworks engages new, non-arts audiences and artists who are politically and socially engaged and would otherwise not have a venue for their work.
