Our artists collaborate with classroom teachers who seek to create a learning environment where students are inspired to learn, to develop the confidence to take risks and be accepted for who they are and who they want to become.
Our hands on activities as well as our performances, are grounded in the creative expressions of diverse oral cultural traditions expressed in stories, music, dance, spoken word and puppet theatre. These include interdisciplinary experiences that also incorporate visual arts activities that support inquiry based learning across the curriculum.
Our programs provide teachers and students with opportunities to explore big ideas, challenge perceptions, discover new meaning and understand a topic all within the context of time and place, and relationships to events and to each other while discovering the interconnectedness of all things.
In 2017 Canada commemorates it’s 150th anniversary as a nation – our Inclusion program stream features song, dance and stories that have kept communities together over time and celebrate the extraordinary people, places, events and ideas that make up this remarkable country.
