CAHEP has an extensive roster of multidisciplinary artists that we draw from every year to serve thousands of children and youth in Thunder Bay.

As a Thunder Bay educator or principal with any of the school boards (K-12), if you are interested in working with a CAHEP artist on a single project, please get in touch.  If there is an arts discipline you are interested in exploring with your class, a project you have in mind, or you’re simply interested in the arts but aren’t sure where to start, send us an email or call us!

Who are our arts educators?

Our local artist roster continues to grow and change every year.   We can provide a sample list of artists available to deliver programs upon request.

Artists are skilled in areas including:
– Cultural programs (First Nations teachings, storytelling, beading)
– Dance
– Drama/Movement/Theatre
– Literary Arts
– Music
– New Media (Photography, film, stop-motion animation, digital music)
– Urban Arts (graffiti/street art, hip hop, etc.)
– Textile and craft (sewing, fabric work, felting)
– Visual Art

All artists who work with CAHEP have up-to-date police record checks.
Some artists are also available to provide professional development in the arts for educators in your school.

What is CAHEP’s role?
The skilled staff at CAHEP provide our expertise to develop a collaborative project that is responsive the needs and interests of your class, will pair your class with a local professional artist, arrange scheduling, site visits, and document and evaluate the project.

How long can a project be?
Projects begin at a single session (ranging from 1 to 1.5 hours) which provides a small taste of the creative process,  can be a larger scale, and more in-depth experience, or anything in-between!

I’m interested!  How do we start?
Please contact us by email or phone 807-475-6526 to discuss your ideas and needs, and for more information on cost and booking.
