Inspiring kids for life through the arts!

With an estimated 30% of British Columbia's children considered vulnerable, quality programs and care are needed for all young children in Metro Vancouver. On December 2, 2014, support Arts Umbrella as we raise funds to to help support our free-of-charge outreach programs, where arts programming is offered to at-risk youth in Metro Vancouver in their own communities.
We have big plans for the new year, and we want you to kick it off with us. Because – let’s face it – you belong here.
Come and celebrate the actor's process with us! The Winter Shorts Festival runs November 28-30 at Performance Works on Granville Island!
