THANK YOU FOR MAKING #MAYWORKS2017 A BIG SUCCESS!

Thank you to our fantastic sponsors, community partners, board and staff, and of course, our audience, for making the 32nd annual FestivalArt Against Precarity – very successful! Special thanks goes out to the 2017 artists, performers, and other contributors, for sharing their works with us.

We invite you to check out photos from all of our events at this year’s Festival, now available on our Flickr page.

Your feedback is very important to us. If you didn’t get a chance to fill out our audience survey yet, we would love to hear from you. Please complete this 2-minute survey before May 30th to help us build an even better 2018 Festival.

BODY ELECTRIC (Corpo Elétrico) is a film about the immigrant-powered city, São Paulo, Brazil, which is charged by tensions and affiliations based on ethnicity, skin colour, class, money, family background and, of course, sex.
