Lawrence Heights & Neptune

Art Starts began programing in the Neptune community in February 2010, beginning with the SuperNova Arts and expanding to include a new youth program named The Element, run out of the Yorkdale Community Arts Centre. Today while SuperNova is committed to ongoing, robust consistent programming on Neptune Drive, the Element continues to grow and reach out the larger Lawrence Heights community. We are building a strong relationship with the community in our most recent site and working in collaboration with a variety of organization to foster unity, build resilience and continue to share the incredible creativity and ingenuity of Lawrence Heights and Neptune.
