About the Arts Network for Children and Youth
National Youth Arts Week is being coordinated nationally by the Arts Network for Children and Youth (ANCY), a national non-profit community arts service organization.
ANCY was established in 1999 by a group of arts practitioners with a vision of sustainable arts programming for children and youth in communities across Canada.
The organization’s vision is for all children and youth in Canada to have access to creative activities in creative spaces. This includes well-equipped spaces for performing and visual arts, both in schools and in communities. The Network has been working toward this vision for over a decade through a number of initiatives ranging from grassroots community development projects to meeting with members of local municipalities, provincial government and federal ministries.
