ArtHeart Community Art Centre (ArtHeart) provides children, youth and adults with visual arts programs, art education and art materials, year-round and free-of-charge. Programs help to develop self-esteem, creativity, life-skills and learning. ArtHeart is unique because it is the only visual arts organization in the Regent Park community.

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, a free city-wide sunset-to-sunrise celebration of contemporary art, returns from sunset on October 4th to sunrise on October 5th. For one sleepless night Toronto is transformed into an artistic playground, as contemporary art installations are found in unlikely places throughout the city. Also, Toronto museums, galleries, art venues, neighbourhoods and institutions open their doors for one night only - all night long.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years, Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
