Nuit Blanche!

This month as an alternative to our Last Friday community event, we celebrated a Nuit Blanche special. This was held on Saturday on September 29th, at the Daniel’s Spectrum (Regent park Arts and Cultural Centre) 585 Dundas Street.Once again the Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre delivered an amazing show for the Regent Park community. The mission to bring the community a hyped up free Nuit Blanche musical show was a great success as the turn out was surprisingly massive and quite unexpected than usual. It made Regent Park’s mark in the map! These musical artists delivered solid performances from the opening act of our very own Focus House Band, followed by Jennifer LFO’s poprocker’s tunes, Aslam Shaheem’s Punjabi dance pop music, and the wickedest dancehall / lovers rock / ska flavour of the Memberz, the drumming geniuses,musical instructors’ Shara Claire and David Aubrey Berger, producer Murr featuring Bengali electronica singer Rosina of LAL, and lastly the adventurous band called Good Clean Feeling! Everyone of the performers sent us inspiring messages such as “No Violence!” “Do not stereotype!” “Justice for the Immigrants!” Police Brutality!” and “Love for your community!” Of course the events would not be possible without the help of the Daniel’s Corporation,Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Argonauts, and Rainbow Cinemas. We will be resuming our regular Last Friday event again happening on October 26, come check us out!
