“STORIES OF NOW” is part of a project ArtBridges is working on with Judith Marcuse Projects’ ASCN (Arts for Social Change Network) and ICASC. It is about gathering and sharing stories emanating from the field now and about what issues and areas of focus matter.

STORIES OF NOW: ArtHeart Community Art Centre (Toronto)
As told by: ArtHeart Community Art Centre's Tim Svirklys (Youth Employment Program Coordinator) and Cynthia Dolar-Butcher (Program Support and Administrator) on September 29th, 2021 to Seanna Connell (ArtBridges).


"If you could tell a story about your community-engaged arts initiative now, this year, what would the story be about? What are the main themes?

TS: Starting up again, rising from the ashes, surviving through COVID – we’re not out of the woods yet, but we can see a light at the end of the tunnel….How great it was to open the Summer Arts Program again (in real life) after a year-and-a-half of being closed. Kids started to come back and said how much they missed us. …Our food program is so successful! But, there are still hunger issues, people are afraid to go to food banks, afraid of crowds and some don’t know how to cook.

CD-B: A story of perseverance, of resilience. We thought it (COVID) would be 3 weeks, here we are a-year-and-a-half later."
