Creating Art Online: Arts Exchange 2020

In 2020 as a response to the pandemic, we launched our inaugural Arts Exchange. We engaged and paid 24 IBPOC artists from across the Region to create in groups. It was a great success, and we are so proud to have been able to work with these artists in this way.

Arts Exchange 2021: Applications Now Closed!

Thanks to Ontario Arts Council and KWCF Spinnaker and BIPOC Funds, we are working on putting together the pairings for our second cohort for Arts Exchange! 

Keep your eyes and ears open for updates on the creative works of this new cohort this summer!

Chelsea's Story

In partnership with SASC and Crime Prevention Council Waterloo Region, we have adapted this play reading and talkback for zoom. The play is meant for youth ages 12+, parents, guardians, teachers, professionals working with childrean/youth, law enforcement, and hospitality to bring awareness to Human Sex Trafficking warning signs and what it looks like to be groomed.

Newcomer Youth Project

This year the yearly Newcomer Youth Program was moved online, and we saw some wonderful creations in the fields of Writing & Theatre, Music, Movement, and Media Arts. We are grateful for our partnerships with YMCA and Wilmot Technologies to make this happen, and we thank our awesome facilitators who guided the students to create in new ways!
