LEGACY LIVES

Capital Campaign — Fuelling Our Journey to 756 Bathurst Street

The Legacy Continues

In 2022, A Different Booklist Cultural Centre (ADBCC) will be moving into one of the 24 conserved heritage buildings in the revitalized Mirvish Village at Bathurst and Bloor in Toronto, Canada. The expansion of ADBCC will provide a permanent gathering place for learning, sharing and celebrating the proud stories of African and Caribbean Canadians.

Join us on our journey to 756 Bathurst Street as we envision a centre filled with history, passion, and creativity.

Four Storeys for the Story to Continue. Countdown to the Move.
