Art Starts Here...
We offer community arts programming in six Toronto neighbourhoods for all ages. Our programs bring together artists and community members to reflect the identities and aspirations of each community.
We offer Special Projects such as arts initiatives, events, and workshops that occur city-wide. These projects encourage connection and collaboration among artists and those interested in the arts.
We foster emerging, youth and/or newcomer artists to help them further their own practices and advance their artistic careers. Our mentorship hub connects them with employment opportunities, grants, and more.
You can help us continue to build vibrant communities through arts initiatives. There are many ways you can show your support: make a donation, give a gift in kind, or fundraise by running your own event or campaign.
