SKETCH Working Arts

SKETCH Working Arts is a community-arts enterprise based in Toronto engaging young QTBIPOC artists and arts leaders, on the margins, ages 16-29, coming from across Canada. SKETCH creates equitable opportunities for diverse young people to experience the transformative power of the arts; to develop their leadership and self-sufficiency in the arts; and to cultivate social and environmental change through the arts.

COVID19 Update - Programs this season will be hybrid: some programs are on Zoom, some are onsite in our studios (by advanced registration only), some are outdoors, and others will be in person at partner sites.
