Our Vision

H’art Centre’s vision is to be Canada’s model, in thought and action, providing knowledge, experience, and proven programming for adults with disabilities and those facing barriers who wish to have access to and participate in Arts, Music, Dance and Theatre throughout their lives and as they age.

Our Mission

H’art Centre is an award winning, registered not-for-profit, charitable community arts hub that provides artists with disabilities and those facing barriers with opportunities to create, study and produce works in the arts and collaborate with qualified, trained community artists.

Our Events

H’art Centre is an award-winning Community Arts hub, a physical place that is joyful, safe, welcoming and inclusive to its artists, their support circles, its volunteers and its audiences.

Our Programs

H’art Centre collaborates with qualified, trained community artists to offer programming that promotes the belief that there are no limits to a creative endeavour and that all people – regardless of ability – should be encouraged to participate in the arts. With this as a foundation, they are free to explore what they are capable of achieving individually, in a group, and within the community.
