StreetARToronto or StART is a pro-active program that aims to develop, support, promote and increase awareness of street art and its indispensable role in adding beauty and character to neighbourhoods across Toronto, while counteracting graffiti vandalism and its harmful effect on communities.
StART's Partnership Program provides funding of up to $40,000 for projects which support the programs mission to revitalize and engage communities through street and mural art.
StART's Restoration and Education Program was created in the belief that arts based education is a meaningful tool to engage, support and inspire (at-risk) youth and young adults. Funding of up to $20,000 is available for projects that meet RE StARTs objectives.
This program is designed to use traffic light cabinet infrastructure as a city art endeavour and provides opportunities for artists to create works of art that contribute to the vitality and attractiveness of the streetscape.
StART UP's mission is to make our City's Underpasses safe, walkable and beautiful.
