We started the AIM Music Showcase to provide up and coming African artists a platform on which to showcase their talents. By giving artists an opportunity to perform on a live stage we are providing them with experience that is critical to their growth and allowing them to work within a community in which they feel comfortable.
Our first showcase, “The History of Our Music” was held at the Rivoli in Toronto, on February 28th, 2014.
What has become popular in today’s pop-culture such as music, dance, fashion, movies and street art has usually started in the underprivileged urbanized areas of the world. Many young people are seldom heard due to the lack of support and opportunity to promote their talent. AIM2IMPACT is changing all of that with our showcases by giving young talented artists a powerful platform to perform in front of live audiences. In the last year, AIM2IMPACT has spearheaded several projects in launching our vision to the Canadian and world stage, including an official celebrity social media endorsement campaign.
Our organization gives local youth the tools to influence positive change in their communities through the arts. With over 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry, as marketing and multi-media consultants, we have forged lasting relationships with industry executives. Using our network we will provide an innovative environment to share knowledge, support, and develop up and coming talent. Programs offered will include:
AIM 2 VOTE Campaign encourages the African Canadian population to take action within their communities by getting to the polls on October 19, for the Federal Election. We are voting for more arts focused education and job creation in the Arts & Culture sector. What are you voting for?
