NEW FRIENDS DIY
NFDIY is a not-for-profit collective run by seven hard-working punks. We hope our work brings you closer to your kindred spirits and inspires you to create your own collectives, support local art scenes, and build your own self-directed futures.
We began in 2017 as a partnership between three friends who met each other through the Canadian post-hardcore scene. Led by our collective love of punk and the vibrant, empowering communities we've experienced while touring, we decided to start this project to continue the rich story of grassroots DIY emo/hardcore in Toronto. We've been working hard ever since to showcase the many inspiring people we've met through this incredible global community in the city we love.
