The Virtual Studio

The Ontario Community Changemakers program will kick off with a Virtual Studio that will take place in two stages on Saturday, August 7, 2021 and Saturday, August 14, 2021.

What is the Virtual Studio?

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions on travel, the program will be 100% online and will kick-off the Virtual Studio. The Virtual Studio is a two day online program that will equip participants with the tools they need to begin implementing their community projects. Participants must be available to participate for the full day on both August 7 and 14, 2021. There will be ongoing online touch points, workshops, and skills building opportunities during the year of the program. Support will be arranged for participants with technical barriers.
