The Innercity Arts Program provides a safe and supportive environment for Ottawa’s street-involved youth to engage in the arts community.

What do we believe?

  • We believe that every youth has unique strengths that can be built upon in order to produce lasting change. Through a Strength-Based Approach, youth are able to develop their strengths, gain self-esteem and build positive relationships with their community.

What do we do at Innercity Arts?

  • We share a meal together

  • We spend time doing visual arts and/or music. Participants are free to work on individual projects during this time.

  • We have an annual art auction

  • Emerging Artists (ages 16-32)

    • Thursdays, 6 pm - 8:30 pm

  • Developing Artists (ages 16-32)

    • Wednesday, 6 pm - 8:30 pm
