VIBE Arts is an award-winning charitable organization committed to providing children and youth in under-resourced communities with high quality arts education. Established in 1995, VIBE Arts has become one of the most celebrated arts organizations in Toronto.

Program Spotlight: NExT Black Futures 

NExT is VIBE Arts’ two-year Black Youth Mentorship Program. NExT – short for Network and Explore Together – was built on the vision to build, connect, and strengthen networks of Black artists throughout the GTA.

Our Opportunities

VIBE programs come to life in various public spaces including libraries, schools, shopping malls and community centres. We bring the arts to as many people as possible. VIBE Arts programming is always community driven, and free for participants.
