A Word from the Artistic Director – MIDDF 2010

I am proud to present the second edition of the Mississauga International Drum & Dance Festival.

The community is invited to come celebrate its artistic and cultural diversity. This year, the festival will include over 60 professional and up-and-coming artists from here and from around the world as well a multicultural market, workshops for kids and families and a media room. The festival will take place at the prestigious Mississauga Living Arts Centre so no need to worry about the weather.

I would like to finish by thanking wholeheartedly the artists, our donors, collaborators, public partners, sponsors and volunteers who are taking part in organizing this festival. Thank you to all of the CanAfric Theatre team: Elisha MacMillan, Stéphane Lachance, Abdoulaye Sidibé, Senga Ongenda, Fatima Keïta, Maud Dufils et Ines Kipré. Finally, I would also like to thank the public who will come take part in the festival.
