Learn how to conceive of and adapt your cultural activities for young audiences and schools

Offered in French only

This course will provide you with tools to conceive of, present and evaluate artistic and pedagogical activities destined for schools and aligned to your artistic practice and creative techniques.

Combining theoretical presentations, practical exercises, meeting and discussions, the session will help you discover varied ways of creating and animating cultural and pedagogical activities.

Further, you will become familiar with the ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS)’s requirements for schools hosting artists. Enriching your knowledge of the children and teenagers you want to work with, you will more easily prepare and deliver artistic and educational activities tailored to young audiences.

A digital pedagogical workbook will be sent to you before the session. After the group sessions on November 28 and 29, you will be invited to prepare a project that you can present to the instructor and evaluate with her (see below).


Learning Objectives

  • Create artistic activities adapted to the MELS program.
  • Develop relevant tools to offer services to school audiences, learn tips to adapt existing activities and know how to present them.
  • Learn in depth information about school audiences as well at the Culture in the Schools program.
  • Better understand the MELS program and teachers’ expectations.

Individual Support

Following the group sessions, you will have access to an individual two (2) hour meeting with the instructor to present and evaluate your activity project.
