Arts & Health Project

The Arts & Health Project addresses the current gap in seniors’ services between those for well older adults and those for frail seniors who are in care. It provides professionally led arts programming for vulnerable seniors in community and seniors’ centres. The intended long-term outcome of this project is “strong, healthy communities that engage seniors as full and active participants and that value the arts as a key contributor to health.”

The facility opened in 2013 after a major renovation and community consultation process. Artscape’s $17 million transformation of the building, a former school, was completed just before the centenary of its construction in 1914. Artscape Youngplace is named in recognition of a generous lead gift from The Michael Young Family Foundation.

The artists and organizations inside the building represent a vibrant mix of art forms and cultural mandates and provide many programs and events to enjoy. The surrounding neighbourhood is one of the country’s most creative, and is a major centre for contemporary art in Canada."
