Our goal is to develop the next generation of business leaders who support the arts.
artsScene aims to act as a creative hub, connecting emerging leaders to the arts by:

• Inspiring interest in the arts through unique and innovative events and programs;
• Offering ways to engage in the arts through volunteerism, forums, and mentorship;
• Providing recognition for outstanding involvement in the arts through the Arnold Edinborough Award.

artsScene is not only a local but a national network of like-minded young professionals who support the arts. Since its inception in Toronto in 2006, artsScene chapters have also been established in Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa – Gatineau, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver.
artsScene was created by Business for the Arts (BftA), a national non-profit organization dedicated to the support and promotion of business involvement in the arts.
