Funded by the Government of Canada’s
Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS) program

N’we Jinan ArtWorks Exploring Creative Pathways with Indigenous Youth is a three-year program designed to meet young, Indigenous creatives where they’re at and support them in where they want to go. 

Working with youth between the ages of 15-30, ArtWorks supports youth in building employability and entrepreneurial skills. Between 2020 and 2023, ArtWorks participants will be gaining work experience in the creative sector, sharpening their entrepreneurial skills, connecting with creatives from coast to coast, and growing alongside a network of other young, Indigenous creatives.

Youth who are part of this program have access to mentorships, internships, collaborations, workshops, professional writers and photographers, grant writing support, and more! 

Most importantly, they can connect to a network of support any time they need. 

N’we Jinan ArtWorks is powered by the team at inPath.
