Imagine volunteering for a non-profit, charitable arts hub that provides people with disabilities and those facing barriers with opportunities to study, practice, create and
produce works in the arts in beautiful downtown Kingston.
We currently need volunteers for H'art School, our program that helps adults with developmental disabilities reach their highest potential through arts and education.
This volunteer opportunity will give you the chance to work alongside and learn from our instructors and participants in the H'art School program.
If you are interested, please contact us by email!
At H’art Centre:
We deliver a high quality day program for adults with developmental disabilities. H’art School helps adults with developmental disabilities reach their highest potential through arts and education. H’art School explores visual arts, theatre, dance, music, media arts, literary arts and more.
We provide access to the arts to those facing barriers. Our fully accessible performing arts space, THE BOX, supports, promotes and advances a diverse and inclusive population through performing arts experiences. Winner of the 2012 City of Kingston Access Award, THE BOX has quickly become the go to venue for community groups drawn by these capabilities.
We change ideas about what is possible for people with disability. Through professional development workshops, we share knowledge and engage people as active arts facilitators capable of working with Kingston’s diverse population. Our ABLE ARTISTS series brings professional Canadian artists with disability and leaders in the inclusive arts movement to Kingston to share their work and insights through workshops and performances.
A leader in the inclusive arts movement, H’art Centre has introduced more than 15,000 people to the creative abilities of people with disability and has engaged over 200 volunteers, over 300 field placements, over 50 artist educators, and over 200 participants with disabilities and other challenges in inclusive arts education. We have delivered workshops at The National Power of Arts Forum of the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, Ontario Association for Developmental Disabilities, Toronto’s Creative Spirit Festival, and the Summit for Social Inclusion. We are members of the Canadian Network for Arts and Learning and Ontario Arts Education Association.
