I have co-founded and I am currently the President of “Club Art” which is a Youth Arts Space located at 113 Broadway, Orangeville, Ontario, L9W 1K2
WHAT IS CLUB ART?
Empowered by a collective of volunteer youth artists, Club Art is a space for young people to exhibit and experience creative arts. Club Art was formed in 2013 as a partnership of the renown Canadian Charity DAREarts, Local Orangeville Store Koros Games and local arts ambassador for this Headwaters region, Wayne Baguley. Through their consistent support, our group of ambitious young volunteers have organized events/fundraisers and workshops to engage the community and ignite interest in what young people can do creatively when given the opportunity.
To provide an inspiring, safe space for youth that fosters creativity, resiliency and a sense of community through expression in various forms.
Short-term- to hold monthly/ bi-monthly events to assist in promoting both the physical space and to serve as a platform for celebrating the art created by youth community members and participants.
Mid-term- to utilize the Club art space on a weekly basis on afternoons, evenings and select mornings to facilitate educational and expressive workshops focusing on a variety of mediums.
Long-term- to provide a safe and nurturing permanent drop in centre where youth of our community can learn, teach, create and collaborate while experiencing the benefits of a group dynamic.
