Congrats to local artist Cameron Dutchak from CTD Designs for receiving the 2014 Young Arts Entrepreneur grant from the MJF. Ears and Eyes salutes you!
Located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Cameron Dutchak’s has been active within the arts for the past decade. He brings personal experience doing large scale graffiti works and commissioned designs on various mediums. As his business continues to grow, Cameron aims to increase awareness regarding social enterprises and community art while engaging youth in new forms of urban expression.
Cameron’s project is based upon re-conceptualizing the idea of what graffiti / street art can mean within a community. By mentoring at risk and marginalized youth, Cameron’s business (CTD Designs) will offer open workshops in various forms of ‘street art’ as well as create an on-going youth mentored arts program culminating in a public mural. Participants will have the opportunity to speak with professional artists, community partners and business leaders to gain experience in developing projects and the opportunities, which arts can provide within the city.
