Description:

Toronto Arts Council’s Artists in the Schools is a four-week spring festival that includes artist residencies, mentorships and special arts presentation events.

The festival provides students with the opportunity to explore their personal connections to the people, places, histories and happenings of their city through art. Funding goes directly to the artists and arts organizations participating in the festival.

This year’s theme, Intersections, is an invitation to focus on (re)connecting, (re)encountering and (re)imagining the spaces we occupy; as we explore and celebrate the unique experiences of our students and their communities throughout Toronto.
