The Community Sites
The St Louis Canvass Project will be located at four sites around the region, Beyond Housing, Central Print, Intersect Arts Center, and The Regional Arts Commission.
Each site was chosen as a result of relationships with a strong community partner which supports the project by meeting the following criteria: accessible to public transportation; offers a safe and clean environment that is welcoming to young people; trained staff on board who value young people; and a commitment to making the arts more available to young people of all backgrounds and abilities.
Middle school students can actively sign up to participate in the Canvass Project at all four sites.
