AGO Live: DJ Sets Guest Curated by the AGO Youth Council

Friday, October 30, November 6 and 13 at 2 pm

This program is part of the partner series, AGO Live: Hello From The Other Side where we welcome partners from across the city to use the AGO as a site for their programs in an effort to revitalize the arts in our city.

The Art Gallery of Ontario is part of the network of large-scale institutions across North America and its partner organizations tend to be the same scale. However, the Gallery’s size is a function of growth, and nurturing cycle of art makers, art thinkers and art community builders often starts within. The AGO Youth Program has partnered with several community organizations over the years. Hello From The Other Side highlights these relationships, inviting DJs who are (past and new) community members to bring fresh sounds to our shared COVID-19 experience. 

. . .

Representing a diverse group of youth in Toronto, the AGO Youth Council is run by youth ages 15-24 who are interested in art and the relationship between young people and art institutions. Through a lens of social practice, the program focuses on community building, experiential pedagogy, and contemporary art practices working collectively to initiate programming by youth for youth. Collaborations with artists result in exhibitions, public art projects, interventions, large-scale events, drop-in programs, field trips, walking tours and much more. Relationship building, eating together and sharing life experiences is also a large part of the program. The council accepts new members every fall, and applicants are selected after a group interview involving current members of the AGO Youth Council. Time commitment: one year. Follow us on the AGOYOUTH Instagram. The next recruitment cycle is Fall 2021.

Before visiting the gallery, you will need to book a timed-entry ticket online. All performances are free with admission, and will follow physical distancing guidelines.
