Supported by the Ontario Arts Council and The Ontario Trillium Foundation, Urban Arts was founded in the early 2000’s by a group of people who loved art, drama, and performing in the Weston-Mount Dennis community. Their goal was to engage the youth about the importance of arts, and expressing themselves as a person. As their motto says, they strive to make a difference by “Engaging youth through the arts.”
The Urban Arts is a non-for-profit organization that offers many different programs such as music, dance, singing, cooking, visual arts, and leadership. Throughout the years, this organization has accommodated about 400 campers in their program!
The camp provides six weeks of summer programming that serves more than 60 youth from 8 to 29 years old. Their purpose is to promote, engage, and facilitate cultural and community development opportunities between artists, arts organizations and community members.
If you love the arts as much as these kids do, Urban Arts is the place to be!
