Come see us this Sunday at Artscape YoungPlace!

The historic Shaw Street School is 100 years old and Artscape Youngplace is throwing a community birthday party on Sunday, September 7 to mark the occasion! There’s an afternoon of drop-in art activities, cupcake decorating, guided tours, tasty treats and more.

All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting future community initiatives and events at Artscape Youngplace. Admission is free; activities are ticketed ($2 for one, $10 for six, $20 for twenty).

From 1:00 to 4:00 pm, the event will feature an array of hands on art workshops, including our Cupcake Decorating Contest:

– Compete for neighbourhood-wide fame and glory in our Cupcake Decorating Contest: bring your best cupcake in the theme “100 Years of Creativity” or decorate one on site with experts from Le Dolci Bakery. For entry details, email

After flexing your creative muscles, enjoy an array of tasty treats including delicious street food from Localista, gourmet popsicles from Philip’s Ice Pops, a Creative Lemonade Stand by Youngplace Coffee Pub and Metro, or stop by the Lucky Penny General Store for snacks and ice cream.
