DAREarts: Inner City Kids Are Taking Up Arms

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 1, 2006) - On Friday June 2nd, 7:00 pm, at Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge St., DAREarts kids will present their artistic alternative to guns and gangs. One hundred and fifty kids from 15 Toronto District schools will take up their arms: paint brushes, junkyard instruments, puppets and cameras, in a presentation which represents the triumphant culmination of the 2006 DAREarts 'All the Arts' program, which has helped over 110,000 kids make better choices about their lives in its ten year history. Toronto's hot new star tenor, Colin Ainsworth, will be performing on stage to further inspire the children, along with other arts professionals.

"I owe a lot to DAREarts...it made me realize that living a slum's life wasn't worth it and I dared myself to be something better". DAREarts youth, aged 15
