Unpacking Toronto’s Caribbean Carnival with Collette Murray
Toronto's Caribbean Carnival (formerly Caribana) is often known as just a street party, but many folks don't understand the social significance of the event. Before the festival starts on July 28, Collette Murray is here to talk about what has been lost since the commercialization of the event and what you need to know before you go. A long-time Carnival participant, Murray is a dance performer, instructor, mentor, cultural arts programmer and a PhD candidate at York University. You can read more about Toronto's Caribbean Carnival in the summer issue of The Dance Current, available on newsstands and on thedancecurrent.com.
