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

Scarborough Arts

Scarborough Arts brings artists to the community and community to the arts, by delivering and promoting arts programming and cultural initiatives in collaboration with the children, youth, and seniors they serve. East 2016 is a skills-based community arts program that supports youth who want to develop their interest in art. Young people are guided through a 40-week process in the arena of a single arts discipline music, theatre, or film. Throughout the year, participants are mentored by industry and community professionals. The program concludes with a youth forum on arts as community practice, along with a final showcase event where all streams developed throughout the year are showcased.
