FREE Family Fun at BRAVE: The Festival of Risk and Failure

Looking for an innovative and FREE family outing this summer. You can’t go wrong with Harbourfront programs. Like this new festival: BRAVE: The Festival of Risk and Failure. Billed as Toronto’s first multidisciplinary arts festival to celebrate failures, risks and triumphs, the fest runs from July 12-29.

The fest features a variety of family-friendly programming, such as a screening of the Oscar-nominated animated film The Breadwinner (July 15). Centred on a headstrong and courageous Afghan girl who disguises herself as a boy in order to provide for her family, the screening will open with a live performance of Afghan music by the talented composer and instrumentalist Qais Essar. Additional family-friendly film screenings include initial box office bombs Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (July 14) and The Wizard of Oz (July 14).

Families can also bust a move at the Main Ingredient Silent Disco, which takes place all festival long. Dance to different live DJs via wireless headphones. Let loose in a silent atmosphere makes it easy for those who suffer from chorophobia, a fear of dancing, to overcome their fear!
