ArtReach Toronto

Toronto Arts Council has partnered with ArtReach to increase access and opportunities for cultural participation for youth across the city.


Application deadline: February 1, 2024

ArtReach's granting program supports community-based arts programming by and for young people from equity-deserving populations in Toronto who face systemic barriers to accessing high-quality arts opportunities. In addition to funding, ArtReach provides free and accessible capacity building initiatives that support the work of young artists and youth-led groups working towards social change in Toronto. Examples include grant-writing supports for applicants, mentorship for funded projects, virtual resources, and free workshops as part of their Grassroots Organizing and Leadership (G.O.A.L.) youth capacity-building series.

Toronto Arts Council provides funds to support ArtReach’s high-engagement approach to grant-making. The organization has established networks to reach youth and has enabled TAC to streamline the process by which we engage and invest in Toronto’s emerging artists, youth, and equity-deserving communities.
