At this free networking event, participants had the chance to connect directly with representatives of various funding and granting organizations that support youth and arts projects in Ontario. Participants learned about different funding opportunities, got face-to-face time with potential funders, and gained the knowledge to help them overcome barriers in accessing funding. The goal of this session was to help youth make relationships with funders and sources of support for their arts projects.
This event also saw amazing spoken word piece performed by PSL's Patrick de Belen, and the event's music was provided by DJ Flex of All Trades.
