About UforChange Movement

UforChange provides young people, ages 16-29, from all over the Greater Toronto Area, with a combination of creative, practical and soft skills that will help them develop their careers in a safe, supportive and collaborative environment. We achieve this through our Core Arts program, offered to over 30 young people every year, along with a series of industry partnerships that lead to workshops and mentorships, which empowers another 350 youth every year.

Northbound has gone digital ‼️Our friends at North York Arts have launched the Northbound Exhibition Program – an NYA signature program that supports the professional development of emerging artists.

For five weeks starting September 20th, each artist will exhibit online through web pages that have been completely curated to fit their vision. The art and the website itself will work in tandem to create a fully realized exhibition. Each exhibition will be enhanced with an artist talk and an Instagram Live to complete the experience.

To learn more about Northbound and each artist and exhibition and register for the artist talks happening every Tuesday starting September 21st at 6pm, visit @northyorkarts and click their link in bio.
UforChange is in Toronto, Ontario.
