H’art Studio helps adults with developmental disabilities reach their highest potential through arts and indirect learning. They work in collaboration with trained, professional community artists on projects in Arts, Music, Dance and Theatre throughout their lives and as they age.
Our fully accessible performing arts space, THE BOX, supports, promotes and advances a diverse and inclusive population through performing arts experiences. Recipient of the 2012 City of Kingston Access Award, THE BOX has quickly become the go-to venue for community groups drawn by these capabilities.
Our ABLE ARTISTS series brings professional Canadian artists with disabilities and leaders in the inclusive arts movement to Kingston to share their work, stories and insights.
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 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.
MixAbilities is our six-module training program designed to enhance access to the arts by ensuring artists and educators are trained to effectively and empathetically support participants who are Deaf and those with disabilities. Recipient of the 2018 City of Kingston Access Award in the category of Education.
