We are offering a new initiative entitled “Canada 150 – Artists-In-Schools Performance Program” for Anglophone School Districts this year. The Artists-In-Schools Performance Program is a special initiative put in place to celebrate Canada 150 by offering schools an opportunity to host one or more N.B. professional artists in schools for the 2017-2018 school year. The Program is offered to English-language school districts. Any school in these districts may participate. NOTE: Francophone schools will also benefit from the Program but directly through the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development’s existing Programs.

The primary goal of the Program is to enhance student’s artistic perception and appreciation of the arts by bringing together the creative potential of students and the unique energy of performing artists (ie. Music performance, theatre arts performance, film screenings, circus arts, dance, puppet shows, etc). The Program provides up to a maximum of $685.

Schools are responsible to arrange a performance with artists directly. To help this, we’ve included on the guidelines links to arts organizations such as your organization as a resource for schools to connect with artists.

 

We are also working to develop an artist registry and will be sending an email to promote the program and increase the listing of artists/groups soon. If there are any ways we can help schools with connecting with performing artists for this program, we’d love to hear from you. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Michel Bérubé.
