Arts Umbrella

Arts Umbrella Nurtures The Creative Minds Of Tomorrow

Since 1979, Arts Umbrella has helped more than a half a million youth unlock their potential through high-quality arts education.

“The arts engage young people in a way few other activities can,” says Paul Larocque, Arts Umbrella President and CEO. “Through the arts they develop life skills that, once unlocked, stay with them forever.”

In addition to tuition-based programming, close to 80 percent of Arts Umbrella’s programming is provided free-of-charge to children and youth in vulnerable neighbourhoods across Metro Vancouver.
