SKETCH is a community arts development initiative based in Toronto engaging young people homeless and on the margins, ages 15-29.
We create opportunities for young people, living street involved, homeless or otherwise on the margins, to experience the transformative power of the arts; to build leadership and economic self-sufficiency in the arts; and to cultivate social and environmental change through the arts.
