Imagine working for a non-profit, charitable arts hub that provides people with disabilities and those facing barriers with opportunities to create, study and produce works in the arts in beautiful downtown Kingston, Ontario.
At H’art Centre:
We deliver a high quality day program for adults with developmental disabilities. H’art Studio helps adults with developmental disabilities reach their highest potential through arts and education. H’art Studio explores visual arts, theatre, dance, music, media arts, literary arts and more.
We provide access to the arts to those facing barriers. Our fully accessible performing arts space, THE BOX, supports, promotes and advances a diverse and inclusive population through performing arts experiences. Winner of the 2012 City of Kingston Access Award, THE BOX has quickly become the go to venue for community groups drawn by these capabilities.
We change ideas about what is possible for people with disabilities. Through professional development workshops, we share knowledge and engage people as active arts facilitators capable of working with Kingston’s diverse population. Our ABLE ARTISTS series brings professional Canadian artists with disabilities and leaders in the inclusive arts movement to Kingston to share their work and insights through workshops and performances.
We reach out so people of diverse abilities can participate in the arts throughout their lives and as they age. H’art Centre’s newest initiative, the H’ART ACCESSIBLE ARTS PROGRAM, takes a community arts outreach approach to ensure all people have access to meaningful arts-based programming. Since 2017, the HAAP program has been providing arts outreach to seniors who live in long-term care homes in Kingston.
A leader in the inclusive arts movement, H’art Centre has introduced more than 20,000 people to the creative abilities of people with disabilities, trained over 400 volunteers, and engaged more than 100 professional artists. We have delivered workshops at The National Power of Arts Forum of the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, Ontario Association for Developmental Disabilities, Toronto’s Creative Spirit Festival, and the Summit for Social Inclusion. We are members of the Canadian Network for Arts and Learning and Ontario Arts Education Association.
We offer a range of career opportunities for people interested in exploring inclusive arts. Below, you will find the details of our latest opportunity:
