MASC is a bilingual charity committed to connecting artists and learning, by providing schools and communities with experiences of artistic excellence and creative process since 1989.
What does MASC do? MASC brings performances and hands-on workshops, created and delivered by professional artists from a diversity of disciplines and cultural backgrounds, to schools and community groups in the National Capital Region, Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec and the Outaouais.
Who benefits from MASC programs? Nearly 140,000 young people, in over 350 schools and 40 community groups meet a MASC artist every year. MASC is committed to making programs accessible to everyone in the community and seeks partners to provide subsidies for programs serving high-need communities.
What programs does MASC offer? MASC’s programs are designed to awaken creativity, deepen awareness, give vivid demonstrations of cultural diversity and offer arts experiences to young people, many of whom have no access to the arts beyond the classroom.
