About Us

Jamii, founded in 2011, is a not-for-profit arts organization based in the Esplanade community, Toronto. Our vision is to enhance togetherness within the communities we engage. We initiate, welcome, enable, facilitate and produce creative experiences, arts events and workshops with, for and by the people of the Esplanade and beyond with an intent of creating shared memories.

What's on?

One event at a time, we are claiming public spaces in The Esplanade to bring arts at no cost to audience members. All events and workshops are free!
