National Youth Arts Week
Your community. Your talents. Your week.
National Youth Arts Week showcases Canadian youth art across the country. The week is a project of the Arts Network for Children & Youth.
Who should be involved?
National Youth Arts Week is an opportunity for Canadian communities to rally together to celebrate our amazing youth – their energy, creativity, and innovative spirits. While young people themselves will be taking the lead in planning and executing their own projects, there are many ways that other groups can support and promote National Youth Arts Week. Get involved if you are artists or arts organizations, businesses, colleges and universities, community centres, First Nations communities, high schools and middle schools, individual youths, libraries, municipalities, parents and adult allies, and service clubs.

What will the City of Windsor do to help?
Like with the Culture Days initiative, the City of Windsor’s Cultural Affairs staff will be able to provide capacity-building support to the individuals and organizations looking to be involved in National Youth Arts Week. We will help market the week and its events in the monthly Cultural Affairs E-Blast leading up to the week, as well as through local media outlets. We will gladly assist in helping artists and organization connect to ensure that those looking to be involved are able to find the space, resources, materials and support they require to have an exciting week celebrating the young at art.
