This new DVD is a celebration of the partnerships between Niagara schools, arts organizations and youth in our community. Profiled are performances and activities for youth, arts outreach programs and classroom activities from schools in the District School Board of Niagara and the Niagara Catholic District School Board.
Since November 2011, Fourgrounds Media has been filming highlights of participatory arts experiences offered by over 20 of Niagara's visual and performing arts organizations and included taped interviews with artists, teachers, parents and participating students.
