ArtsCan Circle Workshops

If you’re an artists and musician and interested in visiting and facilitating an ArtsCan Circle Workshop in a remote northern community or in your community, please send your CV including references and cover letter to executivedirector@artscancircle.org

Currently, ArtsCan Circle is working with five communities that are located in Northern Ontario, Alberta and Nunavut. We strive to visit the communities twice a year and/or provide virtual workshops and events. The workshops take place during school hours, after-school programs and weekends. The typical age range is from JK to Grade 12. We also offer mentorship programs to students who wish to continue their creative art education. We encourage all remote northern communities to reach out to ArtsCan Circle to learn how their youth can be involved.

Since the Pandemic, ArtsCan Circle has held over 50 virtual workshops and 100 in-person classes.
