School Engagement - Nia Centre for the Arts

School Engagement

Nia Centre is proud to be an approved vendor with the Toronto District School Board!

As part of our Creative Connect program, we create space and opportunities for youth within TDSB to expand their artistic interests, identities and skills outside of the classrooms!  

We are bringing Black arts and culture into the classrooms! 

Our Creative Connect Mentors and Artist Educators facilitate high quality, engaging and culturally relevant artistic workshops in Creative Writing, Visual Arts ( painting, sculpture, mixed media), Photography, Dance, Theatre, Music and much more!

Through a combination of hands on workshops and experiential learning opportunities, youth are able to;

  • Develop and learn new art skills, artistic mediums and tools
  • Visit and engage in the artistic experience and exhibitions across Toronto
  • Connect and receive career advice from Artist Professionals working within the Creative Sectors.

Student Engagement activities can range from In Classroom Workshops, Field trips, Exhibition or University tours!
