About this event

Find out how to participate in the Cultural Hotspot by attending a virtual Community Connect information session. Share your ideas about the community-based arts and cultural projects you'd like to see in the Little Jamaica neighbourhood and learn about funding opportunities.

From June to October 2022, the Cultural Hotspot will adopt a new hyperlocal model to support, engage and collaborate with equity-deserving groups, community-based organizations, artists and BIAs in Little Jamaica, helping further animate and nurture a distinct arts and cultural ecosystem.

The Cultural Hotspot will be delivered in partnership with arts and community organizations, and will offer opportunities for youth employment and mentorship. Neighbourhood residents will have the opportunity to connect with each other, share stories and celebrate their unique, defining and common cultural assets and vibrancy through creative expression.

Knowledgeable and experienced artists, community leaders and facilitators will share examples of past projects and lead discussions at the Community Connect sessions.

Closed captioning will be provided. ASL interpretation and any other accommodations are available upon two (2) days advanced notice. Please contact us with specific accommodation requests.
