Program Types: Arts and Culture, Youth Programming,

The 519’s Youth Action and Arts Space (YAAS) is a free, drop-in program that offers youth who are 10 to 14 years old a fun place to connect and meet friends and new peers. Following Public Health guidelines, face masks are optional but highly recommended.
The 519 is collaborating with community artists and educators to facilitate arts and movement-based activities for two-spirit, queer, trans, and non-binary kids, as well as the kids of queer and trans families.We are utilizing storytelling and connections to the body through arts, dance, music, and movement-based activities. Our goal is to ensure we’re creating spaces for all folks within 2SLGBTQ+ communities and that we are prioritizing QTIBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Intersex, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) voices in programming.

Collectively, we strive to create a safer, supportive and inspiring space where everyone – from facilitators to participants – can bring their full selves into the space, feel celebrated and continue to develop and strengthen their skills in self-expression.
