Presented in partnership by the Scarborough Arts Council & Beatz to da Streetz, The Borough Most Thorough is a series of fully immersive urban music creation workshops for youth ages 14 -19. The Borough Most Thorough reinforces for participating youth the depth of cultural wealth that currently exists within themselves and their own communities.

One local community organization from each of Scarborough’s six priority neighbourhoods plays host to an intense, week-long series of mobile music recording workshops. Each workshop allows 10 youth to collaborate on the creation of original hip-hop tracks. Participants explore the writing, recording, production, and performance phases of an original album. The program culminates in the creation of a professionally produced album and digital .mp3 files. The Borough Most Thorough participants gain first hand recording experience, and are free to use their final album to promote themselves and their art form. The recording is free to be shared and distributed by its creators, fueling future musical endeavours without traditional music industry parameters.

The Borough Most Thorough 2010 creates a forum in which it is possible for Scarborough youth to directly develop important life skills, while networking in a safe environment and collaborating with like-minded individuals.
