Art Engagement Project
The Art Engagement Project got the creative flow going for kids in Simcoe County. Through artist expression they were learning how to become allies in their schools to combat anti-Black racism and discrimination. We created the highly successful Art Engagement Project thanks to funding from TD through The Ready Commitment. This funding has been renewed for 2022-23 school year.
The opportunity that classes had included a virtual tour from a Black artist who had a featured exhibit at MacLaren Art Centre. Our Making Change presenters and Black artist mentors worked with a total of 10 classes from Simcoe County District School Board and another 18 classes from Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board. Youth from grades K though 12 got a chance to express their feelings about diversity & inclusion through forms of art, such as visual, dramatic, music and dance.
This program is delivered virtually.
