Check back in September for updates on

tdsbCREATES Arts Festival


tdsbCREATES Arts Festival 2018-2019

Presented by The Toronto District School Board & The Toronto Arts Council

with administrative support from Prologue to the Performing Arts.

tdsbCREATES is a System-wide Celebration of STUDENT VOICE and CREATIVITY

Through the ARTS

Through an exploration of the theme TRUTH, students were invited to respond to issues and questions that speak to them. Teachers together with a roster of professional artists supported students in exploring innovative creative practices while centering the importance of inclusivity and well-being . The student work honours the creative expressions of youth and provokes dialogue around ideas and the art forms used for communication. The public celebration of student work acknowledged the important role that artists and teachers play in modelling creativity and artistic expression.

Thank you to all the schools that participated in the tdsbCREATES Festival this year.
