The Ada Slaight Youth Arts Mentorship Program is holding its 2nd annual collaborative showcase and exhibition at Daniels Spectrum on Wednesday, September 10 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. H.E.A.R.T. (Hungry Eager Artists Rise Together) will showcase a variety of art forms including spoken word, singing, dance, visual art, graphic design, photography and mixed-media art from a lineup of 13 young, emerging artists from Regent Park and area.
The entire community is invited to this free event. Come celebrate the talent in Regent Park and the achievements of our youth participants Jae Legit, Simba Wetu, Rafi Abdur, Sarah Meng, Isaac Mbikay, Mandeq Hassan, I-Selah, Nadia, Ahmed Barud, Raima Chakraborty, Vincentia Amoko, Tristan Reid and Khari Richards. In the last six months, these young artists worked with some of the best artists in the city including D’Bi Young, Mayklee Todd and Rich Kidd, as well as talented mentors from their chosen artistic fields, and now they are presenting their work and artistic growth to the world.
Last year’s showcase and exhibition of the Ada Slaight Youth Arts Mentorship Program was held outdoors as part of the annual Sunday in the Park festival, and drew crowds eager to see the rich young talent of the neighbourhood. This year’s event, hosted inside Daniels Spectrum, includes performances and artworks—plus a special surprise—“by Regent Park, for Regent Park.”
