What We Do...

Mental Health Awareness

Let The Elephants Dance was created to help raise awareness of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety and so much more. We have been proudly partnered with The Canadian Mental Health Association in Toronto and Kids Help Phone since 2016. 

Let The Elephants Dance is a stigma-free place for artists to showcase their work, their stories, their heartbreak and most importantly: the battles they have won, to give hope to those still suffering. There is only encouragement, love and support at our events for all.
 

It is understood by us at Let the Elephants Dance, that everyone’s battles with mental health is both personal and yet a universal struggle. Our goal is that this event can demonstrate hope for the daily battle for those who struggle with their mental health, all while raising the needed funds for the above charities, so they can continue their essential services.

 

From our guest orators, singers, poets, and dancers – we all come together to share a message of hope and understanding.

To this date we have successfully Donated over $28, 000.00 to mental health initiatives in Toronto ON.
