COMMUNITY+Connects: Online (Scarborough Arts)

Scarborough Arts Presents: 
COMMUNITY+Connects: Online 
“Community is what you make it.” 

“As a community we are currently experiencing physical distancing, and community is also what you make it. Community exists in the people and environment you have around you, always, and there are many ways to access community and to support one another even when we are not able to gather together. 

For the past 42 years, community has been at the heart of Scarborough Arts. As an organization, we are committed to bringing community to the arts and art to the community for all in Scarborough. We, as an organization, remain committed to our mandate of serving the people and communities of Scarborough during these precarious times through new online and accessible programming. Scarborough Arts is pleased to present, COMMUNITY+Connects: Online,a new online platform for facilitated workshops, mentorship, artist talks and tours, professional development opportunities, and most importantly, connection. 

Although these are uncertain times, one thing that remains the same is our commitment to the people of Scarborough. With our new online roster of programs, COMMUNITY+Connects: Online brings community to you and let’s you explore creatively in the comfort of your own home. 

Please see the following infographic for the current COMMUNITY+Connects: Online line-up of upcoming programs. And, stay tuned to Scarborough Arts’ Instagram: [@scarborougharts], Facebook: [Scarborough Arts], and website [www.scarborougharts.com] for added programs and opportunities. We’re in this together, and we’re here, together. 

We as an organization are learning how to be accommodating to our community while we continue to isolate at home. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback we are here for you. Please feel free to direct your correspondence to us at hello[at]scarborougharts.com.”
