Supporting young artists from Regent Park and area
This program started in 2013 thanks to a multi-year contribution from The Slaight Family Foundation. It offers aspiring youth artists from Regent Park and area an opportunity to learn about a career in the arts and tap into their creativity. The program includes multiple components: ACCESS Tickets: free tickets to arts and cultural events across Toronto; capacity-building workshops; “In Conversation with…” sessions with international rising stars; and a mentorship program in which mentees are paired with industry mentors in their fields for five months, allowing them to explore the realities of working as professional artists.
