Profile Highlight: Kick Start Arts Society (Toronto)
As ArtBridges’ Community-Engaged Arts Directory grows, we realize that it’s a bit overwhelming to read through all of the profiles. We’re hoping that by occasionally highlighting some profiles on our blog, you may learn about an initiative that you may not have initially seen in the directory. Also, if you know of a Canadian community-engaged arts for social change initiative that isn’t in our directory, but should be, please let us know! We love and need your input/feedback in building this resource! -Lisa, Content Coordinator at ArtBridges.
Kick Start Arts Society offers “workshops, and multi-disciplinary arts training in schools, as well as on the professional levels in community settings. They also produce new work. Their goal is to create opportunities for diverse people and perspectives to intersect – creating meaningful connections, and shared creative experiences.
