About this project

CA$ 3,058

Erika & Jess have both been organizing community events for over 10 years. Always striving to find alternative all ages DIT spaces has not always proven to be the easiest task, we intend to bring a permanent community space to Toronto with a focus on live music, community art, vegan comfort food & a damn fine cup of coffee.

 D-Beatstro will function on the surface as simply a café and art space, which provides food security and fair employment opportunities for marginalized folks.. However there will be a focus on cultivating a culture of community through socially conscious artists, performers, movies and speakers. 

Risks and challenges

warning: too many babes in one space may cause combustion

FAQ

  • The kickstarter money will help with start up costs:
    P.A. , Microphones, Espresso Machine, Music gear and other equipment needed to start up!

    Last updated:
  • D-Beatstro is not yet up and physically running. We have identified the neighbourhood best suited for the space (no west of Dufferin St. , not much east of Spadina and preferably on College or Dundas) .

    In fact, a little space popped up this week (Aug.08.14) that I have had my eye on for over a year and a half.

    In September we are meeting with a loan officer at the credit union that D-Beatstro banks with and as soon as the loans are approved and processed (7 days later) we begin our hunt for the perfect space.

  • We fully intend on opening our doors to you rad folks as of November!!!
