Artists in the Schools
A Program Offering Francophone Culture to Ontario Students
Due to Covid 19, the format of the program has changed.
The artists will present workshops virtually in schools across the province.
Please note that the workshops described here will be adapted by the artists
to meet the needs of the virtual format.
Our youth program, Artists in Schools, brings the rich arts and culture legacy in French to your students in an exciting live performance at your school! We are Francophonie-en-fete, an established arts and culture non-profit known for our annual Francophone music festival each September.
We offer educators the chance to bring a diverse range Francophone music and dance performances into your school. Working with Toronto’s most professional and recognized dance troupes, singers and performers, we offer workshops for primary, intermediate and secondary level students.
Our artists are often educators themselves. They offer dynamic workshops to engage students and enrich the appreciation of the richness of Toronto’s diverse cultural heritage.
Minimum two virtual workshops per school: $ 350
