  • New Connections: Arts and the Settlement Process in Toronto

    This document provides a list of challenges that were identified by artists and cultural workers, as well as ideas for partnerships and programs that could help to address some of these challenges.

  • Arts Engagement and Quality of Life

    SKETCH is a community arts development initiative creating equitable opportunities for diverse young people between the ages of 15-29, living homeless, street-involved and otherwise marginalized.

    ‘More initiatives and programs are emerging which use the arts with marginalized populations. However, there is not always a widespread recognition of the profound impact this programming has on youths’ lives, and its value beyond a recreational activity.

    We wanted to investigate more about this impact: what benefits does artmaking and participation in creative community bring? How does it enhance youths’ personal, social, artistic, and professional lives? Does it have impacts on their physical and emotional health, and their greater quality of life?
