PROJECT HOME

SKETCH’s capital campaign to purchase its transformative art studios in the Queen West neighbourhood!

SECURING SKETCH’S LEGACY SPACE

SKETCH Working Arts is a non-profit arts initiative that’s been engaging marginalized young people through the arts for 25 years! Our programs have been recognized locally, provincially, and nationally.

Against a backdrop of soaring real estate prices, owning our space was the only way for SKETCH to remain in Toronto’s downtown core.

Thanks to our community of supporters and their unwavering belief in the power of young people to create meaningful change, SKETCH successfully raised the $4M needed to purchase our studios through donations and community bonds.
