This event celebrates the work of our joint arts program, The Box of Cultures presented by H’art Centre and Immigrant Services Kingston & Area (ISKA). H’art Centre and ISKA partnered to offer newcomers and foreign residents the opportunity to practice their cultural activities in an affordable, available and accessible space in downtown Kingston, Ontario. It has been part of a continuing effort by the organizations to remove barriers so more people can participate fully in the arts, culture and community.
The Box of Cultures is supported by the generosity the Community Foundation of Kingston and Area, Jim Brown and Joan Lee, Rotary Club of Cataraqui-Kingston, and the Ontario Trillium Foundation. A leading grant-maker in Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities. For more information, please visit the website at: www.otf.ca
