"School Visits at Harbourfront Centre aspires to empower students to recognize that through creativity, and acting on ideas, they can make an impact on their communities (that their voices are important) and that Harbourfront Centre is a unique place/space that can facilitate creative exchange through the lens of artists."
– Harbourfront Centre Staff
As a cultural catalyst, Harbourfront Centre offers transformative arts and cultural experiences for young people by creating innovative and unique opportunities for interaction with artists, global ideas, performances, exhibitions, and our waterfront site through a multidisciplinary lens. Students interact with contemporary art, inspiring performances and working artists to explore their own connection to the arts and their own creative instincts.
The 2015-16 school year brings many new directions to the Harbourfront Centre School Visits programmes. Building on innovations in pedagogy, we want to create engaging experience through our theme-based interdisciplinary programmes. In these full day offerings, students will explore a theme from multiple perspectives and through multiple mediums. Be sure to read up on our themes of sustainability, abstraction and transformation.
Harbourfront Centre's School Visits Creative Edge programme is in a unique position to offer one-of-a-kind artistic experiences. This programme provides direct engagement and special opportunities to work with local, national and international artists, companies and events in contemporary performing, literary and visual arts.
Check out the website for an up-to-date list of offerings for these unique and limited programmes.
School Visits programmes engage students using key inquiry questions as a foundation; your students will be encouraged to explore, create and reflect. Our curriculum based programmes are delivered by artist-educators who are trained and committed to providing the best possible experience for your students.
Join us at Harbourfront Centre School Visits for a memorable and creative experience that you and your students will remember all year long!
