To our community,

We’re thrilled to connect you to SKETCH’s 2023 Annual Report! This past year presented many challenges both locally and globally, and Toronto is as deeply connected to these issues than ever. Believing that the creative contributions of young people are central to providing insights and context, our curatorial theme for 2023 was Courage and Connection.

And because of our supporters, we were able to offer programs, resources, and space to over 471 young people, distribute 4,220 meals, and generate more than $116,000 for participants!

We invite you to read more about our impact in our 2023 Annual Report. Inside you’ll hear from artists directly about how your commitment helped them build their skills, wellbeing, and community through the arts.

Rising costs of food, housing and other living expenses reinforced the importance of keeping vibrant spaces like SKETCH alive for young people. Thank you for offering us the stability we need to make long-term commitments to youth today – and the many more we will reach in the future.

In celebration of all we’ve accomplished together,
