Arts Talk Series #1
Free Event

The effects of arts education on a child’s mental health is vital at the best of times. Over the past year, in-school arts programs have either been drastically scaled back or temporarily eliminated due to health and safety guidelines. Join the Aurora Cultural Centre and a panel of experts to discover the benefits of arts education to a child’s mental health and sense of community-building, how they view the challenges of the past year, and the way forward as we re-engage children in the arts. Questions and your insights welcomed after the presentation. Offered over Zoom.
