ScrapFest is a multicultural, immigrant friendly performance series showcasing alternative artists with varied geopolitical backgrounds and a common outsider perspective. ScrapFest seeks to bridge cultural differences by showcasing artists with a shared queer inclusive narrative. Actually, we just want to have to have fun. “Live, loud, queer and proud. The future is in full colour.”
Since its debut in 2019, Scrapfest has collaborated with the Sur Sangum Foundation, Institute of Islamic studies (From the University of Toronto), El-Tawhid Juma Circle & QTBIPOC Sauga to produce Queer + Trans + Muslim + POC empowered events. June 2020 also marked the debut of ‘ISHQ- Muslim Pride’ virtual event presented in collaboration with ScrapFest. The show featured various Queer + Trans Muslim musicians, drag acts and poets. Mid 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic, the show entertains and leaves an enlightening experience for the future to look back at.
