Time4Change Art Activism Gallery


Time4Change is where ART meets ACTIVISM. We come together to combine the creative and emotional power of the arts with the strategic planning of activism in hopes to bring about social change.

For the past 12 years, YWS has hosted our annual Time4Change fundraiser across the city of Toronto, working alongside our community partners in an effort to educate Toronto communities about youth homelessness through fundraising and art activism, advocating change to help support youth experiencing homelessness.

The T4C 2023 Art Activism Gallery and silent auction will be hosted on March 21st at the Toronto Reference Library between 4:30 pm – 8:30 pm. Join us to see works of art from artists in our community who want to bring awareness to youth homelessness and inspire our community to #MakeChangeHappen. Guests can view the T4C activism gallery and bid on works of art in our silent auction. All artwork proceeds will be split between YWS and each artist 50/50. The auction will begin when doors open, and close at 7 pm with all art distributed to the highest bidder at the end of the night.

Over the past 12 years of Time4Change, we have been able to raise over $1,000,000 to support our youth on their journeys to reach their individual potential. Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 to go towards funding our Emergency Residential Program at YWS.

Tickets are on sale now! $10 per person with all ticket sales going directly to the cause.
