“I think it will start with a whisper, a stammer, a stutter, a moment of bravery. We don’t have to hide anymore.” The AMY Project’s latest collective creation showcases the monologues, songs, movement, and brave hearts by young womxn and gender non-binary folx.
A barrier-free arts education program that builds the leadership, confidence, and unique voice of young women and non-binary youth in Toronto, The AMY Project provides performance training, connections to artistic mentors, and support towards the early growth of artistic careers. The AMY Project operates on the core values of inclusivity, artistic excellence, mentorship and community-building. AMY Project alumni continue to make important contributions to their communities, both in the arts and elsewhere; a legacy of The AMY Project’s ten years (and counting!) of enriching arts programming.
