Since 2010, as a response to changing demand for arts-based participation, Active Arts has gone mobile by investing in cross-sector collaborations with partner organizations building healthy, vibrant and engaged communities. From the partner’s point of view, these new programs enliven and activate individuals and spaces with arts activity – achieved as a result of working together. As a strategy, these partnerships mutually benefit and strengthen our work respectively and illustrate the transformative power of participation in the arts.
