“It was really good, I really liked it. It was fun and a little complicated. I learned a lot.”

“My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It really rekindled my 6 year old daughter’s interest in creating art. It introduced her to new ideas and creative ways. She was really excited to share her art with other people. When one of her pieces was shown amongst a slide show she shouted out, “Hey, that’s mine!” She thought that was really fun. The other day she asked, “When can I do more?”

bet9官网登录入口’s ArtEd program has been invited to participate in a 3-year Youth Mental Health Initiative funded by the Fondation Lucie & André Chagnon and the Government of Quebec’s Secretariat à la Jeunesse. The overall goal of the project being managed by the Community Health & Social Services Network (CHSSN) is: “ to improve access to mental health resources and services for young English-speaking Quebecers ages 15 -29 in order to better meet their needs, especially those exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
All Artists who will be working with youth ages 15 – 29 before March 2022 are invited to participate in the learning communities that we will facilitate.
From 2018-20, ACE is providing facilitation and coaching to support school leaders, community partners, arts organizations and artists from 20 schools across Quebec to plan and implement ACE projects. ACE projects take place over an extended time period, are cross-curricular and achieve education program goals in multiple subject areas.
In 2019, bet9官网登录入口 launched the ArtistsInspire Grants (AIG) program in collaboration with LEARN as a new source of funding for official-language minority schools to hire artists. The $1500 ArtistsInspire Grants will enable students and teachers to participate in hands-on creative experiences about and in the arts.

“The ultimate goal of the program is that through the hands-on creative experiences that artists facilitate, teachers, students and community members in the province are inspired to develop their creativity capacity in ways that lead to individual and community outcomes for learning, wellbeing and socio-economic development.”
– Lead Consultant, Christie Huff
