About the Program:
Desire Lines is VIBE Arts’ multi-year Arts Educator Mentorship Program made possible by the RBC Foundation and Pattison Outdoor Advertising. Each year, a cohort of equity-seeking, youth artists receive employment and mentorship opportunities to lead and curate their own hands-on art experiences for children and youth.
Cohort’s III and IV are dedicated to serving BIPOC women artists. With the disproportionate effect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on women and the BIPOC population, VIBE identified an urgent need to support and platform BIPOC women artists. Each artist is provided with the resources to create their own original 4’x6′ artworks. These works go on to be publicly exhibited in subway stations across Toronto. As well as providing mentorship opportunities, helping artists plan programs and overseeing every step of the Desire Lines Program.
