The annual Delisle Youth Gallery gives artists aged 13-19 a place to show and sell their work. It is open to every young person in the city.
Run by youth for youth, the Gallery provides a space for youth to express themselves. It serves to build community awareness and acceptance of youth and youth issues and to foster, recognize and showcase the incredible strengths, talents and diversity amongst Toronto's youth community.
The Youth Committee is involved every step of the way. Working together with Delisle's facilitators and volunteers from the community, they develop skills in gallery curation, graphic design, event planning and communications. And they earn 40-50 community service hours along the way that can be used towards their high school diploma.
The Gallery welcomes the opportunity to work with community partners and highlight the accomplishments of youth in your programs or schools. Contact us if you are a teacher or community worker and would like to learn more about how you can connect your youth with The Gallery.
