With the opening of the new Arts Umbrella location on Granville Island, we have a unique opportunity to expand our footprint in the wider community.We currently deliver 16 donor-funded programs at over 105 partner locations that serve 6,700 young people. In 2018, 19,873 students engaged in Arts Umbrella programming on Granville Island and across Metro Vancouver at little or no cost. With the help of our donors and supporters, we provided over 500 bursaries and scholarships to those who needed it most.
By more than doubling our net square footage, we will be in a position to expand our community-based programs. Distance learning labs will allow us to reach into communities across Canada through programs like Connected North.
