The 1988 edition of WOMAD Toronto took place at Harbourfront Centre, where it then ran for five years, produced by the Community and Educational Programs Department headed up by Marilyn Brewer.

In the 30th anniversary of the festival, the WOMAD 30 panel will explore the climate that launched this community based international festival three decades ago, asking such questions as: Who was there? Why did this ground breaking festival happen in Toronto? Why at Harbourfront Centre? Why in 1988? What was special about the event?

Participants include Denise Donlon (Moderator), Ann MacKeigan, Lillian Allen, Rob Bowman and Derek Andrews.
