On November 30th, The Canadian Network for Arts & Learning, in partnership with Arts Can Teach released a report on the impact of multicultural arts and artists in elementary schools. The report was an analysis of a project funded by a $61,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation where Arts Can Teach hired and trained multicultural artists to work with teachers in elementary schools in the Greater Essex County District School Board. The report was released through a virtual webinar in which artists and teachers involved in the project detailed the work that they had done in Windsor region classrooms.
