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.
 
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.
