Hamilton Youth Arts Network: Voice, Space, Issues
Published on 08/10/2008
This story describes a community-based initiative designed by members and groups affiliated with the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction, a Vibrant Communities convener organization.
A collaborative initiative led by the YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington started people thinking about youth engagement projects in new ways, focusing on the three things youth said they wanted: an opportunity to have a voice, space – virtual and physical – and the chance to become involved in important social issues. A focus on the arts led to great projects and a better understanding of how to capitalize on youth energy and vision.
