In partnership with the Black Creek Community Farm, Corner Commons and Jane Street Speaks
Sundays at 7pm from May 17 to July 19, 2020

The Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) is privileged to be partnering with the Black Creek Community Farm, Corner Commons and Jane Street Speaks to bring you Sunday Sessions, an Instagram Live Performance Series that is taking place on Sundays, May 17 through July 19, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.

Sunday Sessions is a new series that showcases the work of outstanding performance artists from Toronto’s Jane-Finch neighborhood. The weekly lineup includes singular performances by Kibra (an exceptionally talented R&B Singer); Nathan Baya (poet, rapper and Jane Street Speaks Founder); and show stopping rapper Terence Penny.  One of the performance nights will feature a live painting session by  Kofi Frempong who will be joined by acclaimed curator Ashley McKenzie-Barnes for a simultaneous interview. Stay tuned for the updated lineup as the series continues into the summer.

In a time of social isolation Sunday Sessions provides audience members with a meaningful virtual connection to a variety of cultural practices that reinforce culture as a vital community mobilizing and solidarity building force.  This series reflects our collective commitment to recognizing how our neighborhood is home to a vibrant art scene that inspires, fosters and celebrates local talents.
