This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

MABELLEarts

MABELLEarts brings together people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to make art, tell stories and creatively transform the Mabelle neighbourhood – a high-density Toronto Community Housing complex in Central Etobicoke. Its A Park of Many Paths Program has increased community safety and social cohesion, decreased community tensions and has increased skill development, resilience and capacity of the participants. With the help of a facilitator, MABELLEarts is preparing for expansion by increasing its capacity to run multiple projects, increasing civic engagement in new neighbourhoods, and setting the groundwork for new, stronger relationships with stakeholders.
