Some of CAHEP’s longest running programs have taken place in schools across the City. After careful consideration, and with funding support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, we embarked on the first phase of a vital re-imagination of the school-based Artists in the 5th program. This video created by local artist Keegan Richard captures one of our Re-Imagining Arts Education sessions held in 2017.
Why re-imagine our school based programming? The needs within schools and the wider community of Thunder Bay have changed significantly since this program began in 2003. We have seen a tremendous increase in demand for our programs, especially as the impact of the arts becomes more widely recognized and celebrated. We also believe it is important to take the time to reflect and learn from those who have helped make Artists in the 5th so successful!
