U Atelier

DJ, Fashion, Film, and Photography and much more!

Get Ready. Get Involved.

Since Workshops in the 6ix’s launch in the winter of 2016, it has served as a platform for alumni, and those taking part in the current cycle to ensure that they continue to grow and improve their skills. We are proud to say that it has become a permanent addition to what UforChange offers. Every year, the workshops are selected based on a survey to all youth currently participating in UforChange workshops and alumni. Workshops in the 6ix provides youth unable to commit to our 8-month program with short-term high-impact workshops in a variety of topics such as business in the arts, graphic design, and theatre, among others. The workshops provide youth with an opportunity to meet new mentors, many of whom are industry professionals and emerging artists. This year, UforChange provided workshops such as: branding & social media, leather making, intro to DJ, learning to code, public speaking, screenwriting and grant writing. We were able to partner with Soulpepper, Design Exchange and industry professionals to engage 45 people.
