Thoughts About Art and Community
Lakeshore Arts is committed to improving the availability of arts, cultural and heritage activities within our neighbourhood. We encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to participate in the arts as a way of enriching their lives and strengthening the fabric of our community.
Lakeshore Arts provides children and youth with high-calibre arts education through diverse programs in local schools, community hubs and in our very own gallery space. We are always working to support artists in our community, be it through providing employment opportunities, professional development or exhibition opportunities. Lakeshore Arts is also engaged in off site community projects to ensure that artists, residents, and local businesses all have a creative outlet in their community.
