How long have you been a member of Scarborough Arts?
Literally, if not for a butterfly on 1859 Kingston Road, I wouldn’t have been a member of Scarborough Arts. The monarch butterfly wings brightly painted on the front door of the Bluffs Gallery was the invitation. I passed by it many times on my way to visit my grandchildren. And finally, in the early spring of this year, the curiosity got the best of me. I entered through the butterfly door, got soaked in the butterfly magic, let my imagination flow free . . . and signed up!

I am glad I did. My inspirational photo Wings of Light that was included in … Read More »

KALEIDOSCOPE

Posted by scararts in Featured Programs. No Comments

27th May

Kaleidoscope: Intercultural Arts Afterschool Program is a multi-year after-school program that visits schools in under-served communities across Scarborough.  Classes are led by professional artists, including Marvin Ismael, Canadian actor and playwright, and dancer/DJ Sheldon Forde.

Kaleidoscope is a five-year program created by Scarborough Arts, serving under-served communities in Scarborough. The program was developed after a year-long needs and capacity building study which found that, despite the fact that Scarborough contains some of the most diverse neighbourhoods and schools in Canada, arts and cultural programs are limited, particularly for newcomers, youth and culturally-diverse communities. In response, Kaleidiscope integrates arts disciplines to expose children to different ways of life and creative expression. Each session highlight stories and experiences of coming to Canada and emphasize intercultural dialogue and exchange.
