Founded by Toronto musician David Buchbinder in 2011, Diasporic Genius uses an arts-based approach to community development and civic engagement. It is a project of Tides Canada.

The City of Toronto enjoys the greatest ingathering of diasporic people the world has ever seen. Diasporic Genius (DG) seeks to empower people to make real, positive change in their lives, their communities and their city by tapping into the knowledge and creative potential this rich diversity offers.

After three years of successful pilot programming in the Thorncliffe Park neighbourhood, DG is now embarking on a second phase of activity, soon to be revealed on an entirely revamped website.
