Our Team

AVNU is a collaborative initiative of eight community organizations: ArtReach (lead organization), Grassroots Youth Collaborative, Manifesto Community Projects, Neighbourhood Arts Network, NIA Centre, Schools Without Borders, Sketch and Toronto Youth Cabinet.

The AVNU Advisory Committee brings together stakeholders leading grassroots and institutionalized capacity building initiatives, as well as representatives from educational and governmental institutions to ground and guide our development.
