PROFILE: Urban Arts Camp



In the early 2000’s, a group of people who lived in the Weston- Mount Dennis community had a love for the arts and wanted to put on plays and performances within the community. Unable to secure funding for their endeavours, the group took it upon themselves to teach children the importance of arts and the freedom of expression that comes along with them. Urban Arts was founded shortly thereafter, “engaging youth through the arts”!

Today, the Urban Arts organization has blossomed. A not-for-profit operation out of the Weston – Mount Dennis neighbourhood. They offer a series of programs such as music, dance, visual arts and leadership. The organization services approximately 400 children throughout the year.

They got super into it!

As a means to accomodate the children whom they do not get to work with throughout the year, they offer a summer program. This summer program – a condensed version of all the programs that the Urban Arts organization runs throughout the year – begins on July 2 and runs until August 15.
