Since 1999, Arts For All has reached over 60,000 children and youth with innovative, high quality arts education and community arts programs.
The Arts provide low-barrier access to explore ideas, issues and experiences. Processing life’s experiences and challenges through the Arts creates skill building opportunities – the open door to developing resilience, self-esteem, educational outcomes, self-esteem and discipline. Let’s not forget joy, that life-affirming feeling that leads us to many personal and professional discoveries over a lifetime.
Arts For All is a charitable organization of the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts. It specializes in working with partners to be ‘art-ready’ – in space, in staff, in thought. AFA sees the arts as training for the future for all areas of life, not just artistic ventures. The Arts nourish a community’s assets, make organizations more innovative, stretch our imaginations and our possibilities.
We open access to arts for everyone. We inspire citizens. We foster community wellbeing.
