What are Projects?

Projects are a mix of arts events and productions that take place during our festival in and around Kingston, Ontario . These can be anything from a theatre show, a concert, a film showcase, an art show, a fashion show, etc. All projects must be led by youth between the ages of 13-30. If you have an idea for an arts-based project, we want to hear it!!

Funding will be available for space, equipment rentals, general expenses, marketing support, and general administrative guidance to successful applicants! This, however, is subject to the nature of the project though we will be able to provide support with sourcing  additional funding.

For more information on the Youth Project Leader Program, view our: 

Choosing a Project

New Project Idea

In most cases, youth will submit creative project ideas that they have come up with. These can be in any art medium though they need to provide an opportunity for youth in the community to get involved. 

Not sure how to go about coming up with your own project idea? Check out this video for some tips!

Existing Project

Are you interested in participating in the Youth Project Leader Program but don't want to come up with a new project? We are looking for youth to be project leaders for our staple events!

Choose between:

  • Battle of the Bands
  • Musical Theatre Production
  • The Play Series
  • Art Gallery
  • Film Event

Each of these projects have been executed as part of the Juvenis Festival in the past though each are open to your interpretation. 

If you are interested in leading any of these projects, please let us know in the "Outline your project idea." question and include any information you know so far or of any ideas you have for the project. 

If you would like more information on any of these events, please contact us to learn more!

What we’re looking for:

Your idea doesn’t need to be perfectly planned out, but we do want a sense of your thoughts on:

  • What other team members you would require to help you
  • How many roles are available to youth
  • What kind of venue you have in mind for this event
  • If funding is required, how much would be helpful (an approximate estimate is acceptable) and what would you need it for? (budget not required, but you can create one if you like)
  • Ideal length of time for your event 

And most importantly…

  • Why your project will be an important experience for young people involved in the process
  • How your idea will impact local youth (beyond those directly involved in the project)

Please contact if you have questions about programming!
