Culture and Education Committee

Culture and Education Committee (created in 2008)

The Culture and Education Committee

Considering schools as key players in providing universal and equal access to arts and culture to citizens, the Culture and Education Committee
explores and analyses the various ways in which Montreal schools integrate artistic and cultural experiences in their respective environments and
curriculums, therefore offering such experiences to their student, teaching and administrative bodies, as well as to the community.

The committee examines various themes and issues linked to culture and education such as arts education; the place of artists in schools (through
residencies and workshops, per example); collaboration between schools and municipal cultural venues and workers; student participation to local
cultural activities, et cetera.
