In 7th year of operation, RISE continues to grow exponentially each week. The consistency has made a big impact on thousands of youth and the community-arts sector across the city. To date; they organized just over 400 events, including our 46 Monday nights each year, gathering over 28,000 recorded attendants. Their first collaboration with the AGO was in 2016, when RISE poets brought an incredible spoken word program across four Friday Nights at the gallery. RISE Founder Randell Adjei was part of a Basquiat panel the year before, and in 2019, they co-presented an incredible choir at the AGO’s new All Hours program. Join RISE as the choir reconvenes at the AGO once again.
This program is part of the partner series, AGO Live: Hello From The Other Side running through the Fall and Winter season.
