Arts classes are not accessible to all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, due to factors like cost, mobility challenges, or restrictive age offerings. Arts education opportunities that support folks teaching or leading arts classes are even rarer! We imagine a province where intergenerational, age-friendly arts programming is accessible and available in all communities.
Creative Communities aims to accomplish just that.
Old School's bus pulls into town, provides a participatory training session for youth or older adults interested in being arts leaders where they live.
The next day the Old School bus is open to the community where trained volunteers can implement and practice what they have learned and dreamed up.
After the visit Old School remains a resource and cheerleader to those forging connections through the arts across the island.
Upcoming dates TBA. Check back to see when Old School is coming to your community!
