AFC Launches Newsletter

Welcome to the first issue of jumpstart – the official newsletter of Arts for Children of Toronto. You have probably read about our activities in previous issues of Splash. We have chosen to segregate the two newsletters to avoid any confusion. The Avenue Road Arts School and Arts For Children are, in fact, two distinct organizations; AFC being the charitable organization that has benefited from its association with the School. Its focus is on bringing high quality arts experiences to children in underserved communities in the City of Toronto.

CBC to Sponsor 10th Anniversary Party

CBC Radio and Television have generously agreed to be the media sponsor for AFC's 10th birthday party, to take place in the Barbara Frum Atrium of the CBC building this fall. The event will be hosted by Metro Morning's Andy Barrie and performers will include internationally known Canadian musicians as well as some of the children who have participated in AFC programming. In addition there will be displays of the kids' artwork and videos about some of the programs offered by Arts for Children.

Arts for Children was established in 1995 as a charitable organization to open doors to young people from underserved communities so that they might benefit from high quality arts training through its Scholarship, Outreach, and Summer Arts Camp programs.

On November 27th we celebrate ten years of success of this organization which, last year, reached more than 6,000 youth. The experiences that many of these children have are life changing.
