Presented by Kuumba and JAYU, Letters to My Future Self is a prompt dedicated to highlighting Black futures and all their possibilities. So often during Black History Month, we center the trauma Black folks have experienced, losing sight of the stories we have yet to write. In each letter, ten artists will explore their questions, hopes, dreams, aspirations and, most of all, where they are going. With stories filled with excitement or uncertainty and knowing their history, what can they believe about the future? What will they want their future selves to know? No matter the answer, Letters to my Future Self holds space for all their dreams and ones unrealized.  

Audiences can expect a diverse range of stories told by ten artists as they write letters to their future selves. Hosted by Harbourfront Centre, it is a journey of diverse storytelling by a range of intergenerational poets, visual artists and many more looking to the future.
