Reaching Intelligent Souls Everywhere (RISE) is a youth-led movement that has been providing opportunities and spaces for youth to develop artistically/professionally, personally, socially, and spiritually. We create safe and inclusive spaces that foster self-expression and healing through the performance arts and storytelling. 

1. Mission Statement: R.I.S.E (Reaching Intelligent Souls Everywhere) Edutainment – Our programs provide youth with opportunities to express their creative voice, develop artistic and innovative leadership skills, and build capacity for professional artistic practice, while encouraging them to work from a place of love, social consciousness and political engagement. 

Vision Statement: Our vision is developing professional, socially conscious artists, providing them with accessible resources towards artistic management & performance opportunities for emerging artists’ across the GTA.
● In the next 5 years, we will contribute to Toronto’s challenging music industry by establishing a management company & record label to assist artist’s with their professional artistic endeavors.
We are tackling the challenge of lack of inclusive platforms for emerging artists by expanding our R.I.S.E Poetry Monday events in key locations throughout the GTA
