Project ArtPowerment is hosting an exhibit to showcase the artwork and stories of youth from North Etobicoke. Opening night for the exhibition will be April 21st, 2017, and it will be on display until April 27th.
Project ArtPowerment is a grass-roots initiative providing spaces to empower minority youth in shaping their identities and sharing their narratives through art and critical discussion. This exhibit is a celebration of the spirit and resiliency of youth in the Dixon and Rexdale areas of North Etobicoke, and a testament to their boundless potential to inspire social change. Youth in this area often face multiple barriers to success. The pieces in this exhibit serve to fiercely challenge, resist, and rewrite disempowering mainstream narratives.

Stay tuned for updates on speakers and program!
