Nationally, Kids Up Front has a goal of 12,000 tickets dedicated to the CIBC Theatre for All in 2019. In Edmonton, our office has a goal of 2,000 tickets for 2019 and have distributed 1,194 so far this year.
The CIBC Theatre for All program helps Kids Up Front offices across Canada give deserving children and youth 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’s valued corporate partner in providing access and promoting arts and culture. With their financial support, we are able to give our communities young people access to new experiences and expose them to the benefits of arts and culture.
