Arts Programs

The Arts Program provides a non-threatening and democratic space through which to tell the newcomer story. It is a space to explore social issues relating to race, culture, identity, gender, religion, stereotyping and discrimination. Our objective is to hold conversations that engage community, and share ideas that help break down barriers and help build healthy and welcoming communities.
