TCDSB Artist in the Schools Program 2014-15
Engaging Learners through the Arts
 
2014-15 Deadline is September 30th - Submissions are closed.
 
Funding is covering the cost of the artist and is allocated to elementary schools based on the proposal submitted for the following school year.  The proposal should be a collaborative project in the school and express and demonstrate student voice and engagement.  This may involve the whole school, a division, or mixed grades.  It is not for purposes of Christmas concert, spring play or any end product presentations. It is a process of how it will benefit the students in their learning through the arts.
