Who are our members? What are their stories?
Enjoy our intimate video profiles of select SA artist members.
As a celebration of diversity during Asian Heritage Month 2012, we produced three spectacular, intimate video profiles of selected Scarborough Arts Members. We’re celebrating our members while reaching out to new audiences, SA members and potential SA supporters. This is an ongoing initiative.
Scarborough Arts acknowledges the support of the Ontario Arts Council Arts Investment Fund for this initiative.

In-Development: Scarborough Arts Podcast
We have the capacity, we have the creativity, and we have the technology. In our position as the well established Local Arts Service Organization (what is a LASO?) we have the connections to reach out to a diverse, engaged cultural network.
Stay tuned in the late summer/early fall for the first Scarborough Arts Podcast; celebrating creativity and exploring the cultural fabric of Scarborough. This will be an ongoing experiment, where we can all flex our muscles as cultural leaders and artistic stewards of the East.
Please let us know if you’re interested in contributing.

Throughout May, it’s been like a bee-hive here! Amongst many other things, we’ve been working on a three-pronged celebration of diversity, during Asian Heritage Month. 1) We’ve produced three spectacular, intimate video profiles of select SA artist members. 2) We’ve worked on the translation and integration of useful Scarborough Arts info in 5 new languages, which we’ve incorporated onto our website. Check out the orange characters in the top right area of your screen. 3) We’re launching a print media ad campaign in four local ethnic media publications. We want to raise awareness of the work that we do, and also give people … Read More »
