Article content

The city’s H’art Centre has extended its call for community artists to apply for training in its “MixAbilities” inclusive arts program by an additional week due to the current provincial restrictions.

The program introduces local artists and artist educators to H’art Centre’s approach as well as some specific strategies and techniques in teaching artists with disabilities. In return, H’art increases its roster of available instructors.

Many of the skills learned during the training course can also be applied to other settings, the description on the H’art Centre’s website (hartcentre.ca) reads.

According to that same description, the program aims to: increase your awareness and understanding of inclusive and accessible arts; effectively and empathetically support an interested community of all abilities to participate or contribute to the arts; develop your skills and confidence as inclusive artists/educators; and increase your knowledge and understanding of the value of arts for this population.

The deadline is now April 30, the same day bios and resumes are due. For more information about the program and for links on how to apply, go to hartcentre.ca/opportunities.
