The Possibility Program

Established in 2005 in response to a lack of arts programming available for young people in communities across Ontario, the Possibility Program subsidizes performances and workshops in schools that are identified as underserved by district school boards. The Possibility Program is inspired by the founding vision of Prologue – that every young person in Ontario should have access to performing arts experiences that inspire, empower and spark imaginations. In 2018-19, 9,000 students at 25 schools across Ontario were impacted by this program!

The Possibility Fund addresses issues of equity caused by limited school arts budgets, fundraising resources at schools in underserved communities and the marginalization of young people due to socioeconomic factors or other variables. Currently involving a partnership with the Toronto District School Board and also reaching some schools outside of the GTA, Prologue is seeking to expand this initiative to engage young people in underserved, Northern and rural communities across Ontario.
