ArtsCan Circle works closely with the northern indigenous communities to help provide a connection with the musicians and artists and the students.

The workshops consist of playing instruments, songwriting, creative composition, edittng and recording, singing, dancing, drama, DJing and visual arts. Music and art workshops are held in the schools and/or community halls throughout the day. We also offer after-school music programs with the ArtsCan Circle’s musicians. On the last evening, family and friends are invited to come to the music jam night.

Please email executivedirector@artscancircle.org for more information on how to have ArtsCan Circle visit your community.
