What does art mean to you?

At Arts Umbrella, we see young faces light up when given the opportunity to create—whether it’s being part of new choreography, writing and performing a play for the stage, designing an opera-singing robot for the screen, or pushing the boundaries in the visual arts.

Art means different things to different people. That’s what makes it so powerful. Every young person gets something different from their artistic journey, and we help make that happen. Every year, the staff at Arts Umbrella—with the support of our donors and volunteers—bring arts education to thousands of children and teens across Metro Vancouver, including free programming to young people who face barriers to participation due to socio-economic, cultural, or family circumstances.

With the gift of art, you’re opening a whole new world of possibilities for a child. Because to them, art is everything.
