Our Vision and Mission
ArtsCan Circle is dedicated to indigenous children and youth in indigenous communities in northern Canada. Indigenous youth are our country’s fastest-growing demographic. Our hope is to encourage self-esteem amongst Indigenous youth through creative arts.
To encourage self-expression and self-esteem in Indigenous and Inuit children and youth in remote northern communities in Canada through a cooperative exploration of the arts. We do this by sending artists to facilitate week-long creative art workshops in the schools. The workshops consist of teaching drumming and numerous other instruments, songwriting, recording, singing, dancing, drumming, drama and visual arts. Children and youth are encouraged to find their voices and express themselves through their art.
