ArtReach is an organization designed to support arts initiatives that engage youth who have experienced exclusion in under-served areas of Toronto.
A guiding principle for ArtReach is the idea that funding needs to be accessible to youth directly and it needs to empower youth by placing ownership of projects in their hands. ArtReach encourages youth to take the lead in defining what art means to them and what they need from the program to achieve their goals.
In addition to funding, ArtReach provides capacity building initiatives that aim to strengthen the community of young artists working towards social change in Toronto. Examples include grant writing supports for young people applying to the fund, mentorship for youth and groups that are provided with funding, as well as free workshops on different topics of interest as part of the GOAL Youth Capacity Building Workshop Series.
