On Thursday March 24th 2011, Twestival T.O was brilliant. Raising over $18,000 for The Remix Project, the night was simply beautiful.
One of the greatest challenges we face as an organization is continually providing relevant tools and resources to the young people participating in The Remix Project. With more than 40 youth participating every six months, who all commit fully to the pursuit of excellence in their craft, the demand on resources is constantly weighing over head. Thanks to Twestival Toronto we have been able to add a wealth of tools and resources into our programming. Our Creative Arts and Art of Photography courses have been given a generous boost and have in turn secured five new workstations for the participants, an in house camera as well as memory cards for all photography participants. And to top it all off, we will now be able to run a full series of workshops with industry leading professionals in design, advertising, photography, writing, financial literacy, and small business planning from around the city throughout 2011. Thanks to the incredible support from Twestival Toronto, our digital city has rallied behind our community and cause to provide valuable opportunities for all of our young people to thrive.
Many thanks go out to the Twestival organizing committee and all those who chose to support this event.
