WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD WE BE WITHOUT THE ARTS
ArtHouse is like a Village – and it’s not a small village. We estimate that close to 15,000 young people have little or no access to extra-curricular arts programs throughout the Halton Region. And while we simply can’t reach everyone, we are grateful to our Community Partners, Our Instructors, Volunteers and our Donors who are helping us to engage our most vulnerable young people providing them with better pathways to their futures. Through Covid, our role changed when we transitioned from Live to Virtual and back to Live. We’ve learned so much more over the past three years, and as we move Back to the Future, we know we can do an even better job to serve our young people – creatively, physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, educationally, nutritionally, environmentally and unconditionally in an atmosphere that is supportive and safe. We are determined to show them those “possibilities”, helping them plan their futures in this fast changing and exciting 21st century.
Since 2009 ArtHouse has engaged over 10,800 vulnerable young kids by providing 784 Neighbourhood and Community Programs, delivered at 90 Subsidized Housing locations, Cooperatives, Community Hubs and in collaborative partnerships with front-line Agencies throughout Halton.
ArtHouse is a Halton charitable organization that provides FREE arts-based programs for children and youth age 7-17 who have little or no access to fee-related activities. We nurture the wellbeing of the Whole Child every step of the way – unconditionally – in an atmosphere that is supportive and safe.
OUR FRONT OF THE LINE POLICY:
Over the last 14 years, ArtHouse has built a strong network of families throughout Halton that has been introduced to us through our many Neighbourhood and Community partners. As a charitable organization that is grateful for its generous financial supporters, we remain fully committed to directing their donations to programs that support children and youth residing within the Region of Halton and where cost may be a barrier. While we do not want to discourage anyone from registering, we know there may be disappointments and thank you for your understanding.
ARTHOUSE – CONNECTED EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
