Q? Y Art? Project is a free multidisciplinary arts program for South Asian LGBTTIQQ2S/WSW/MSM* youth in Toronto that ran in the summer of 2012. We are working with the Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention (ASAAP) and are funded by ArtReach Toronto and the Community One Foundation. Our goal is to bring together youth 29 and under to engage in a multi-day program to engage in arts practices, create portfolios and launch their work.
