DAREarts is a Canadian charity that works annually with over 13,000 9-to-18 year old children in underserved urban and rural areas across Canada. As the children explore world cultures and paint, sculpt, sing, dance, compose, design, write, act and create alongside arts professionals, they experience a broader range of activities beyond what is available to them and learn to express themselves and problem-solve in positive ways. DAREarts students become leaders when they are charged with the responsibility of returning to their schools and communities to teach others what they’ve learned. Since its founding, DAREarts has influenced more than 190,000 underprivileged Canadian children. Visit www.darearts.com
