OUR IMPACT TO DATE
SUPPORT ARTSCAN CIRCLE
what's happening today
We're expanding the ArtsCan family and looking for our newest Board Members! You can read about the requirements in our In The News section.
Finishing 2019 on a high!
We've successfully led five trips within a two month period in a co-ordinated process made possible by our donors, board members, dedicated team, and our growing roster of world class artist facilitators.
Our mission is to work with our community partners and schools to create workshops that address the needs of their youth, community and curriculum. The approach works because it develops relationships built on mutual trust and understanding. We are very proud of the longstanding relationships we have with everyone involved, the new relationships we've built and are working on - and for the belief that is continually instilled in our organization and the artists we work with.
RIGHT NOW WE ARE IN PIKANGIKUM! We have Indigenous artists' Christian Monias Taillefer in the community working with youth from Peetabeck Academy in capturing and filming stories of the Ojibway language and how it is instilled in the community!
