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
