Each year the NBAF brings together people from all communities. This year will bring two collaborative community groups together, the No Borders Community Voices who will perform a series of songs composed by indigneous composer, Beverley Mckiver, and the Toronto Jumblies Performance troupe, who will share film and lead panel discussion groups. No Borders is inviting local artists and musicians to join in the festivities and share their experiences.
