    A few weeks ago, I wrote about The Remix Project trying raise money to save their programs and the projects – you can read here. The REMIX project is a youth arts program in Toronto that is helps young aspiring people to start their careers in the urban arts industry (Recording Arts, Creative Arts and Arts of Business). The Remix Project will be holding a fundraising event on June 11th at Circa. There will be a reception/ silent auction from 6 – 10pm and an after-party from 10pm – 3am.  You can get advance tickets for $25 at Big It Up Locations (Yorkdale, Eaton Centre, Square One), Cole (803 Queen St. W), and the Remix Project (110 Sudbury St.) Read the press release below. Hope to see you all there!!!!


    The Remix Project, a United Nations award-winning National Crime Prevention Canada program, is holding a fundraising event on June 11, 2009 as part of efforts to help save its courses and find a new home.

    The Remix Project is a successful three-year-old program funded originally through a research and pilot grant by the National Crime Prevention Canada (NCPC). The program serves gifted but under-served and vulnerable young people across the GTA through courses fostering arts, cultural and life skills. As a result of its work, The Remix Project has helped to keep a number of young people off the streets and produced talented, newly motivated individuals. Over 110 graduates have been able to realize their creative and business potentials.

    The NCPC funds research and pilot programs only, and The Remix Project’s research component has ended. As such, though the NCPC believes the program is a success and would like to see it replicated in other cities, it is no longer able to continue funding. In addition, The Remix Project is seeking a new home for September 1st, since its current location will soon be transformed into condominium developments. Gavin Sheppard, the program’s co-ordinator, feels it would be a shame to see the program go. “We would hate to be put in a situation where we have to stop helping GTA youth, especially the ones who have gone through so much, who have had so many obstacles, so many barriers placed in their way and just need the right support and a simple push in the right direction” he said.

    With a $100,000 goal, The Remix Project hopes its fundraising event will save the program. GIVE MONEY, MAKE CHANGE will be a multi-faceted event including photography and visual arts installations, performances, a silent auction and a pledge-driven dance.
