The Artists in Communities and Schools Projects program supports the research, development and realization of arts projects in communities and schools. Activities involve professional Ontario artists and community members working together to develop and design a creative experience. These experiences may include co-creation. Skill building is a core component of projects.

This program was created as a result of merging the Artists in Education,
Artists in the Community/Workplace Arts Education Projects programs.
