About Richard Best

Richard Best started working with VIBE Arts in early 2000. Over the years, he has worked with countless children and adults teaching African drumming workshops across the GTA. His noted credits include working and performing with the award-winning Indigenous artist and musician David R. Maracle. More recently, Best had the opportunity to create the music for three independent documentary films by Jeanette Kong, The Chiney Shop, Half: The Story of a Chinese Jamaican Son and A Brief Record of My Father’s Time at Sea.   

About VIBE Arts

Established in 1995 by founder Lola Rasminsky as Arts for Children of Toronto, VIBE Arts initially functioned as a provider of arts scholarships with the goal was to ensure that any child, regardless of means, could benefit from high-quality, hands-on arts experiences. In 2002, programming shifted away from awarding scholarships to a focus on outreach programming. This move stemmed from the belief of reaching more children, increasing accessibility by ensuring that artists are facilitating programming directly in neighbourhoods. Their no-cost programming is now offered in over 50 neighbourhoods across Southern Ontario.
