Open Mic-Event

Our signature annual youth Open-Mic and Gallery event unites and provides a platform to youth creators and social entrepreneurs across the GTA, ages 15-23. Each year, we are amazed by the talent, refreshing new perspectives and above all else community created. In the past, this event has attracted over 150 youth from across  the GTA, and 10 community  and corporate sponsors. 


The Open-Mic section intends to amplify the voices of youth creators performing through any creative medium including speeches, spoken word, film, music, dance and any other creative platform. The Gallery provides a space for youth entrepreneurs and artists to showcase their small businesses, community organizations and creativity.
