FESTIVAL WEEK

TUESDAY 5 – SATURDAY 9, AUGUST 2014
Scarborough Village Theatre & Scarborough Village R.C.
3600 Kingston Rd. Scarborough

StArt Youth Presenting Art looks at the connection between the Arts and community upliftment. We’re creating an environment where residents from Scarborough’s diverse communities can come together, be engaged and celebrate in the talents of Scarborough’s young emerging artists. The festival will provide youth with a platform from which they will be able to express themselves, and truly speak to their community.

It’s time to StArt something!
