The Toronto District School Board & The Toronto Arts Council are pleased to present: 

tdsbCREATES Arts Festival 2017-2018


Narratives of Now

it's about you, it's about the world, it's about time!



Through the theme Narratives of Now, we invite students to unleash their creativity to explore issues, themes and questions that are speaking to them NOW!

We invite teachers to support their students in exploring the intersection of student voice through a variety of critical lenses.

tdsbCREATES is a System-wide Celebration of Dance, Drama, Media Arts, and Visual Arts.


tdsbCREATES is a Celebration of Student Voice

Students and teachers will partner with artists to explore their personal perspectives and connections with others and the world around them.


tdsbCREATES is a Celebration of Creative Ideas

Public showings of student work will honour the creative expressions of youth and provoke dialogue around ideas and the art forms used for communication.


tdsbCREATES is a Celebration of Arts and Creativity for All

The public celebration of student work will also acknowledge the important role that artists and teachers play in nurturing creativity and artistic expression.
