This summer, the Canvas will be offering two powerful, unique programs each and every Thursday evening. First, we'll be bringing back TEENS TAKING ACTION, a series filled with workshops and discussions (and food!) investigating the intersection of community, social justice and the arts, starting each Thursday at 4pm. Then at 6pm, we'll be kicking off our THURSDAY NIGHT LIVE series, a weekly event focused on showcasing talent, loving the arts and just having fun. From poetry slams to concerts to dance battles and more, these programs will all be FREE.
