WHOOP! I am so excited for this event or should I say events coming up! Young creative people from all over the GTA should be attending this event if they aren’t already involved. Reading about this just made me smile because as Big Sean would say, Toronto? “we do it”. Check out the details below and check out their website http://themanifesto.ca/ so you can see why you NEED to be there.
Have a dope Friday everyone 🙂
