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.
