IN THE COMMUNITY
Serving our local community in creative ways is a priority for the Arts Club. To that end, we offer a variety of workshops and other educational programming.
In the current season, programming has included the Afterschool Drama Club at Cousteau School, in North Vancouver, and a Canadian Citizenship Ceremony, at our Goldcorp Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre.
We have also offered public programming that addresses themes or issues in our theatrical productions. For Fun Home, the Arts Club partnered with Qmunity to provide workshops to discuss gender identity and LGBTQ2 issues for more than 400 students across Metro Vancouver. For Me and You, playwright Melody Anderson led a mask workshop, and for Forget About Tomorrow, we offered a lecture about the connection between Alzheimer’s and creativity.
We are eager to explore other ways to extend our reach in the community during the 2018–2019 season.
