The House of PainT Festival of Urban Arts and Culture has brought together musicians, dancers, artists and community members for more than 16 years. Due to COVID-19, the usual summer celebration of all things hip hop won’t be taking place under the George Dunbar Bridge as it has in the past.
However, House of PainT’s General Manager Veronica Roy says the festival team is still working hard to share programming with the community during the pandemic.
“We don’t know when we will be able to have a festival again, but hip hop as an art form is nothing if not perseverant,” Roy said in an email interview.
