2017 Edge: Youth Art Show – Presented by Arts Etobicoke
Wednesday March 1 – Tuesday March 7, 2017
First Floor Vitrines and Second Floor Hallway Galleries
Now in its 20th year, Edge: Youth Art Show is a free arts education and public exhibition program for youth.
Edge: Youth Art Show showcases work from secondary school students (grades 9-12) in TDSB & TCDSB schools and young people (14-18 years) from agencies across the GTA. This free 7-day exhibition is a non-juried event with over 100 youth from approximately 20 schools and agencies participating each year. All participating schools/agencies receive a scholarship to be used toward enriching their arts education departments.
It’s a great opportunity for young artists to experience exhibiting in professional art gallery, participate in a critique of their work, and connect with working artists and arts communities.
To help maintain community safety and contain the spread of COVID-19, Artscape has temporarily closed its community cultural hub facilities to the public and cancelled all Artscape-led in-person programming. We are monitoring public health and government recommendations regarding the reopening of non-essential businesses and public gatherings to guide our decision on a re-opening date.
Meanwhile, we welcome you to attend our free virtual programming through Launchpad Learning Online. See What’s On.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
While numerous professional associations have created their own COVID-19 resource guides, Artscape’s compilation focuses on a collection of financial resources and supports to help creatives across all of our communities navigate this situation.
