Legacy Lives Here! Capital Campaign
Join Us on Our Journey to 756 Bathurst Street

In early 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. 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.

Our new home at 756 Bathurst Street will comprise four floors, and will feature:

▪ community programs/events
▪ a nonprofit administration office
▪ a library & archives
▪ artists & scholars in residence
▪ pop-up space for arts/cultural entrepreneur

▪ a bookstore
▪ an art gallery
▪ a drumming studio
▪ culinary experiences
▪ community space rentals
