  • What will the world
    be like in 20 years?

    20 community leaders share their thoughts

The Next 20

This year is ArtStarts' 20th anniversary. As we celebrate our accomplishments and impact, we are also inspired to think ahead about what the next 20 years hold for young people. What role can art and creativity play to support our next generation to thrive in the future?

To help us explore this question, we sat down with 20 community leaders across different sectors and asked them to share their story and thoughts on the relevance of art and creativity. Over 20 weeks, we'll share these stories with you. We hope that they will inspire you to join our community of supporters so that together we can continue to build a bright future for BC's young people.

  • What will the next 20 years hold for young people?

    How can the arts and creativity play a role 20 years from now?

    What should students learn to succeed in an unknown future?
