RE-create Art Outreach

RE-create welcomes youth artists who identify as experiencing marginalization and barriers in their day to day life, whether that is weathering the storms of mental health issues, living independently at a young age, or experiencing precarious housing or income. RE-create’s studio space, which is shared with a number of other youth-serving arts organizations, is a safe and accepting place for youth to come and discover their creative, expressive side through the arts.
