Join us for the eighth annual Mayworks festival, a family friendly evening of food, music and performances celebrating migrant workers struggles through the arts.

This year’s Mayworks! Will feature a debut performance of the Immigrant Workers Centre Community theatre project, co-created by workers and for workers to share stories of resistance and dignity in struggle

For the Past two months workers have been engaging with a variety of media, including theatre, text, video, photography, visual arts, sound and performance, working towards a collectively-created performance for May Works 2013, a festival that celebrates the struggle of working people through the arts. This initiative also builds upon Migrant Voices project, a grassroots radio project in which workers recorded a series of audio testimonies chronicling their experiences of exploitation, but also of courage and collective power. The theatre pieces will explore themes ranging from the experience of living without status, the process of migration, workplace injustices at the hands agencies and employers alike, and the daily organizing of immigrants for status, equality and better work conditions.

The evening will also feature performances from PINAY cultural group, Les Zimmi Grances choir, and others

Please note the space is wheel chair accessible. Childcare will be provided on site, with programming and activities for children.
