StArt Youth Presenting Art looks at the connection between the Arts and community upliftment.
We’re creating an environment where residents from Scarborough’s diverse communities can come together, be engaged and celebrate in the talents of Scarborough’s young emerging artists.
The festival will provide youth with a platform from which they will be able to express themselves, and truly speak to their community.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2012 and WEDNESDAY 8, 2012
young aspiring artists can take part in “Master Classes” ( workshops ) in: acting, singing, dance, spoken word, fine arts, photography, video/short film. These interactive “Master Classes” will help strengthen the youth artistically. The classes will be led by some of the most talented professional artists in Ontario.
