Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre (Regent Park Focus) was established in 1990 as part of a provincial government initiative to promote health in vulnerable communities across Ontario.
Regent Park Focus is a not-for-profit organization located in Regent Park, Toronto. Regent Park Focus is motivated by the belief that community arts and participatory media practices play a vital role in building and sustaining healthy communities. Regent Park Focus seeks to increase civic engagement and inspire positive change by giving youth the tools and support to create artistic works and media productions.
Youth are encouraged to work collectively to develop resources that explore issues of relevance to them and their communities. These resources, along with the process of creating them, increase personal well-being, contribute to community health and address systemic barriers to equitable social participation.

Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre is funded by The Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council and Rogers.
