The largest graffiti and hip hop jam in Canada. Last year over 8000 people attended this 2-day festival, located in 3 different venues across the city.
Join us this year on July 16 th at the Yonge and Dundas Square for a full day of performances, bboy battles, and painting. Later that night the party takes over a nightclub for more performances (tbc). The 2 nd day the event moves to the Queen West Alleys from Spadina to Portland as over 100 writers paint together all day, revamping the alleys and interacting with the public. This peaceful display of commodery is a prime example of the fact that graffiti is not gang related. Come witness the amazing talent and good vibes created by this subculture.
9pm on July 16th at YD Square- screening of: R.F.Supa is a film that was created by Press Pause. It is a story about a character named R.F.Supa and the grey scale environment in which he resides. A visual series of events leading up to the day that it all changed for the better. It also poses as a metaphor for the day that the ³Graffiti Eradication Task Force² gets its way, and how the city might feel with no color. The core film is a collaboration of all six members of press pause with individual films by each artist. The diverse creative backgrounds of this collective are definitely displayed throughout this film with both traditional methods and digital animation processes being utilised.
