During the summer of 2020, ProArteDanza connected with artists Miss Lyn, Pulga Muchochoma, T-Bai, and Gabriel Hudson to listen to their experiences as BIPOC artists in the Toronto scene.

Shine The Light focuses on diversity and inclusion challenges in the Toronto performing arts scene. “People need to talk about it, be a little bit uncomfortable… but if we’re afraid of talking about uncomfortable stuff, we cannot fix the problem”, said Pulga Muchochoma. “I’m a big advocate for being the change you want to see in the world around us” , Miss Lyn emphasized.

ProArteDanza is immensely grateful to all the participating artists.
