"Thank you for holding space and for facilitating a wonderful workshop series. These things aren't easy to talk about but I think the youth really built a sense of trust and took chances exploring art and connecting that to the teaching you shared. Please stay in touch, we would love to connect with you again!!!"

Our IMPACT

Since 2018, we have reached over a thousand young people in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area with our educational programming. We have also carried out professional development workshops with teachers in the Toronto District School Board and other school boards. 

In June 2020, we received a 3-year grant from the Ontario Trillum Foundation's Youth Opportunity Fund. This grant enabled us to hire and train 18 young people ages 18-25 as workshop facilitators.

Over the course of the pandemic, we have been delivering our workshops in an interactive online format, bringing our programming to virtual classrooms in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Through these workshops, young people have been producing inspiring art that challenges prejudice and hate and promotes belonging.
