CIBC Theatre for All
The CIBC Theatre for All program helps Kids Up Front across Canada give children and youth, who face financial, social and/or ethnic barriers the gift of experiencing a live arts production like theatre, dance, opera or the symphony.
Exposure to arts and culture has many benefits. It can expand a child’s horizon and inspire dreams and hope for their future. Arts and cultural performances can help develop young minds, nurture creativity and encourage a long-lasting connection with the arts. It also allows children, youth and their family to be included in the arts and culture community.
CIBC is Kids Up Front Foundation’s valued corporate partner in providing access and promoting arts and culture. With their financial support, we are able to give our communities most vulnerable young people access to new experiences and expose them to the benefits of art and culture.
Thank you to CIBC for funding this valuable program.
"The kids feel: 'I do fit here, I’m part of society, I’m part of community.' They have something to talk about with peers when they come back from the weekend. It’s about normalizing things for kids."– Agency Representative
