The City of Toronto's StreetARToronto (StART) program is embarking on its 5th year! StART is a proactive program that aims to support, and increase awareness of street art throughout the city. StART's mission is to see Toronto as a 'living work of art' by creating partnerships (between the City, residents, businesses, and the creative community), reducing graffiti vandalism, encouraging civic discussion about public art, using art to foster place making, and providing grants, materials, and mentorship opportunities.
StART will be holding the following 4 information sessions highlighting what to expect for this year's programs (updated guidelines, deadlines, etc.):
Monday, January 18, 2016 from 3:30-6 pm
