My friends from Illume Creative Studio in Rwanda just release visuals in celebration of their company and their new space in Kigali.

Haute Caribe: The World of Trinidad & Tobago Fashion from Wedge15 on Vimeo. Trinidad is always in my mind. My parents and my entire family are all from that small island just north of Venezuela. Yesterday I was walking around Toronto doing errands and ended up walking next to a father and daughter who were […]
HILLMAN from Hillman Curtis on Vimeo. I’m watching this in that strange state when you realize how much someone has affected you only after they are gone.

Since that time I’ve paid attention to what Kehinde is up to and recently saw this video on […]
I noticed this year that friends of mine have been calling it “Manifesto Season.” If you are in Toronto and you’re into hip hop of a certain kind you probably know about the Manifesto Festival of Community and Culture. This is the first promo video for the festival that is already underway. I met Denzel […]
