Creating opportunities to put young Montrealers in touch with the performing arts. This is the philosophy behind Place des Arts’ School Program, which has been offered in the city’s schools for close to 10 years now. The program gives students, working with their teachers, a chance to take part in true creative experiences alongside enthusiastic artist-mediators.
The School Program is inspired by an aesthetic education approach. This method aims to change young people’s views of the world around them.
The ultimate goals of the program are to foster young people’s academic success, develop their critical sensibilities, and provide a sense of empowerment.
In 2021-2022, the School Program offers two options: workshops with cultural outings or standalone cultural outings.
