Greater Forest Lawn

YOUTH ARTS ACTION (South) and WHAT FEEDS US are our primary program in GFL. They are both comprised of youth aged 15-18 who act as creative leaders in their community.

Calgary Playground Day!

Youth Arts Action has been busy planning activities for Calgary Playground Day, hosted by Parks Foundation Calgary & Antyx Community Arts. Playground Day will be hosted at the new natural playground in Forest Lawn (Greenspace @ 43rd Street & 10 Ave SE) on Saturday October 17 from 11am-2pm. 

Youth Arts Action have been thinking up ways to engage members of the immediate community in activities that will celebrate community and this new hub-park that was designed through a series of community consultations. 

There will be music powers by bicycle, an interactive scrabble board,  art activities, games facilitated by Antyx’s very own Youth Arts Action along with presentations by local elders, community members and leaders - including MLA Joe Ceci and Councillor Andre Chabot - and delicious food from M&M Meats!

Youth Arts Action


YOUTH ARTS ACTION are a group of youth (ages 15-18) who act as creative leaders in the Greater Forest Lawn area. The youth identify and address issues that are relevant to them in the area and then create a series of creative projects to transform these issues in their community. Youth will work with local artists and organizations and will build community leadership and artistic skills while doing so.

We are looking for youth interested in making positive social change in their communities through creative ways starting this September 2015. We will be meeting every Tuesday 4:00pm-6:00pm at our Antyx Youth Arts Hub #205 ­ 4202 17 Ave SE starting September 22, 2015 . Currently, projects include building a digital sound installation and sculpture to be installed in the new natural playground across the street from Greater Forest Lawn High School. Other projects will be generated depending on the issues that the youth want to address. We have also planned a series of field trips to galleries, events and to meet other youth leaders throughout the fall term. There is no registration fee necessary.

ANTYX COMMUNITY ARTS is a creatively unique organization that develops opportunities for youth to use the arts for self-exploration, building community connection and making positive social change. Our mission is to engage youth to empower and transform the communities they live in.
