Arts programming for the new generation

The Quebec Cree School Board has initiated the development of an Arts Education Concentration Program – Mikw Chiyâm – to be implemented in all their high schools over the course of five years. This interdisciplinary enrichment program aims to increase student retention by reinforcing Cree identity through artistic expression. Our aspiration for the program is to inspire youth by creating contexts for students to collaborate with professional Canadian Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. Four intensive five-week creative residencies will be offered in schools during the academic year. This program is projected to take place in three CSB high schools in Northern Quebec for the 2016/17 school year.
