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

tdsbCREATES: CHANGE 

Arts Festival 2016/2017

CREATE CHANGE!

The 2016/2017 tdsbCREATES Arts festival is all about CHANGE - big change, small change, expressions of change, patterns of change, change of perspectives, and questions that arise in response to change. Students are invited to create powerful statements of CHANGE!

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

tdsbCREATES Artist Residencies in every Learning Centre, Grades 1-6

Up to fifteen elementary schools in each learning centre will host an artist in residence for five days from February to May. Each of the schools will be partnered with artists in dance, drama or visual arts.  An artist will be partnered with two classes in each of the schools for five days.  

The residency will facilitate a rich creative process which can be extended and expanded upon by the classroom teacher. The residency will culminate with a sharing of the learning, rather than a final exhibition or performance.


tdsbCREATES Dance & Spoken Word

Gr 7-12 students  will create original dance works and spoken word performances that say something powerful about their connections to the theme of CHANGE. Teachers and artist mentors will support the students as they develop their creative voices and artistic skills through engagement in a rich creative process. A jury of professional artists will view the students’ creations, provide meaningful feedback, and select performances for a final showcase.


Join us for original dance and spoken word performances by Gr 7-12 students at the George Weston Recital Hall, Toronto Centre for the Arts on April 25, 2017, 7:30 pm. Register NOW! Click REGISTER FOR DANCE & SPOKEN WORD

Teachers and artist mentors support the students as they develop their creative voices and artistic skills through engagement in a rich creative process. A jury of professional artists will review the students’ proposals, provide meaningful feedback, and select works for the final exhibition that will run between May 4 – 18, 2017.
