Art Starts inspires long-term social change in Toronto’s under-served neighbourhoods, using the arts to engage residents, collectively work to overcome challenges, and create a shared sense of identity. Arts Starts blends play and art with its tRUE heART Basketball program, which engages youth from Lawrence Heights in recreational basketball and sports-videography. Youth, who might not otherwise have access to arts education, have the opportunity to showcase their work from the program at a video exhibit planned and curated by the youth.
This is an outstanding city.
