About the BIG ART BOOK
The BIG ART BOOK is a print and digital anthology of visual and literary work by local and emerging artists and writers featuring an online and a print publication and series of activities. Building on the foundation established by the annual Youth Scholarship Awards and the 2010 Scarborough Writers’ Month, the BIG ART BOOK involves residents of all ages interested in promoting their work and connecting with like-minded members of the community.

This project was developed in response to identified needs among local Scarborough artists and a broader desire at Scarborough Arts to support intergenerational, multidisciplinary programs that are accessible to community members of all ages and interests.
