Help make sure community arts are accessible for everyone!

This past year arts champions like you helped Lakeshore Arts bring creative programming to 2,816 children and youth and 4,308 families and adults. Help us continue to strengthen our programs, increase our outreach and build innovative ways to bring our community together using the arts.

Your donation will play a vital role in the development and growth of our programming including; our youth drop-in program YAM, our arts education program SHAZAAM, and our seniors program INTERPLAY. These programs encourage leadership, build social cohesion, support employment and mentorship opportunities for emerging and professional artists, create more arts events through community collaborations and develop the arts as an essential part of education.

Because of donors like you we are able to reduce the barriers to participation for our programs that develop vital creative skills in safe spaces across Etobicoke. We would not be able to offer the programming we do without the support and generosity of people like you.
