ArtTransforms Series Episode 2: Art Speaks

SKETCH and their partners at TraffikGroup are proud to launch their web series #ArtTransforms: six 90-second video vignettes in which young people reveal their own personal Art Transforms story. The series covers themes like mental health, inclusion, entrepreneurship, and more. Young people share how engaging in the arts at SKETCH has sparked their own personal and artistic transformation.

In the second episode of the seven-part series #ArtTransforms, musician and entertainer, @Dynesti, shares her story.

Dynesti Williams is currently working on her first album entitled The Dyna. This project will take listeners on a journey through her experiences as a young person from the margins who worked hard to transform her life through art. Dyna is her nickname, and The Dyna is the creative space where she combines the ingredients of the universe into sonic food dishes for the soul. This album will be released for free after Dynesti’s tour across the US with producer Timian which started on October 1.

Make an impact on young people’s creative voice and capacity today.

On any given night in Toronto, about 2,000 young people are homeless. For 20 years, SKETCH has been advocating that access to the arts is a potent response. Through Dynesti’s story, we can inspire to public to see the urgency of providing opportunities in the arts for young people to live well and lead in shaping our communities.”
