H’art Centre is a registered not-for-profit, charitable organization for adults with disabilities and those who face barriers who wish to take part in affordable, accessible and available arts, music, dance and theatre programs led by trained instructors and qualified community artists. We exist so all people can participate in the arts throughout their lives and as they age.
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. It is a space that provides a sense of belonging, facilitates opportunities to realize potential, and offers the level of comfort necessary to build skills and awareness that will be with them all their lives.
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.
H’art Centre passionately believes in nurturing a vibrant, exciting and supportive culture that encourages artists, staff, volunteers and audiences to reach beyond society’s limiting beliefs and expectations, to value each other for their creative abilities, and to share this understanding with the world.
We offer five main programs we hope you will explore today.
