FLAME is a series of FREE ART programs for queer and trans young people under 29, that is rooted in self care and community building. We want more spaces to make art, to share our stories and also to celebrate our work!!

There is an understanding on taking part in the program that we will all be working to creating safer spaces and to support each other as we aim to have good respectful relationships with our communities, ourselves and this space we call Toronto.
