The Applying to Request for Proposals (RFPs) workshop is being offered as part of the Toronto Youth Equity Strategy (TYES) Action 1D: “The City of Toronto will invest in youth artists and arts groups to develop youth sensitive and appropriate communication materials (posters, videos, songs, stories, etc.) that will promote key city programs that serve youth needs”. These workshops are being offered to assist youth artists and arts groups in preparing to submit proposals for a Request for Proposals that will be put out by ArtReach, in partnership with TYES.  The RFP will be seeking proposals from youth artists and arts groups to complete communications products (posters, videos, photos, etc.) promoting City of Toronto services and initiatives for youth.
