Kitoko is the Lingala word for beauty, and in a world that doesn’t often afford folk of Colour in particular bla(c)k folk an autonomy to their own ideals, Kitoko is a vision that looks to celebrate all that is beautiful about us, by us and for all those supporters, allies and consumers of bla(c)k culture. This night will feature a schedule of music performances, a fashion show by some notable Melbourne designers and our most honest expressions of truths, by leading contemporary voices.

This is a night we promise you don’t want to miss, so be sure to grab your tickets early, as they will go fast and spaces are limited. Come through in your best threads, we mean that. Dress to impress because we will be, come enjoy this beautiful evening of bla(c)k joy filled with some of Narrm’s most talented Artists.
