Hear Here is partnering with SKETCH, to support opportunities for young people on the margins to access creativity and succeed.
SKETCH believes that young people navigating poverty, living homeless and on the margins have unique creativity and perspectives. Their contributions are needed to build inclusive and vibrant, culture and community.
Since 1996 SKETCH has continued to provide community-engaged arts initiatives for young people, ages 16-29, who are navigating poverty, living homeless, or on the margins to: experience the transformative power of the arts; build leadership and economic self-sufficiency in the arts; and cultivate environmental and social change through the arts.
SKETCH engages youth who face a myriad barriers and obstacles and who are isolated, and disconnected from the broader community. We believe these young people, despite or perhaps because of their resilience in facing adversity, have immense creative and entrepreneurial potential.

Toronto Youth Poetry Slam is a platform and community that consists of some of the top youth spoken word poets in Toronto and the GTA. With varying storytelling styles and powerful narratives, these individual voices create a unparalleled poetic chorus of truth, struggle and healing when they hit the stage. You can catch them on multiple stages across the city, facilitating mentorship programs or preparing for their annual trips to different international poetry conferences.

Hear Here is more than a literary salon; walking into an event that is united under one cause is invigorating. Every corner of the space is dynamic and filled with artists of all stripes sharing their hearts out for literacy. It was joyous.Poet

Had a great time sharing the stage with such a variety of artists at the Hear Here event in October. Poets, musicians and visual art awakened the 17th floor of a downtown building that overlooked the billion lights of this amazing city that is ours, Toronto. Great to share my work with new admirers and connect with fresh ideas and with charming and eccentric folk. Thanks again for the invitation and look forward to more.Poet
