Media Advisory - Kingston-Galloway youth present festival arts showcase
  
Tomorrow, youth from Scarborough’s Kingston-Galloway neighbourhood will showcase performance masks, textiles and photographs from their program, “Project Random.”

A two-year initiative, Project Random was launched this past summer. The multidisciplinary community arts project brings together local youth and professional artists in an exciting art-making process celebrating the festival arts. Local youth took part in skill-building activities covering four artistic disciplines: face painting, mask making, stilt dancing and photography. Accessible, vibrant and colourful, the tradition of festival spans diverse artistic disciplines and cultures and has the potential to engage everyone. The project continues in 2008 with additional workshops, apprenticeships, performances and community leadership opportunities for youth.

Date: Tuesday, December 18
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Cedar Ridge Creative Centre, 225 Confederation Dr.

Project Random is a partnership initiative between Toronto Community Housing (TCHC), West Hill Community Services and City of Toronto Culture. Project Random is a Kingston-Galloway Community Youth Arts Project in support of the City’s Community Safety Plan - Neighbourhood Action.

Funding for the project is through TCHC’s Social Investment Fund. The objective of the fund is to enhance the quality of life for TCHC residents, and build strong and healthy communities by supporting initiatives that promote social and economic development, increase access to opportunity and community supports, and promote community participation and inclusion.
