As part of our mission to connect the greater Milton community with artists of all genres in the spirit of providing cultural enrichment, Arts Milton coordinates “The Friendship Project”. Arts Milton’s MCF funded Friendship Project connects Newcomers with Community Hosts within Milton. Together they participate in free arts and culture activities over a period of four-five months. The program encourages community engagement, creates connections, develops tolerance and reduces isolation.
On February 28, 2021 new Friendship project participants gathered on Zoom for a Meet and Greet event including icebreakers and drama games with Calowis Entertainment. Over the next three months participating families will enjoy numerous arts and culture activities including local nature workshops with Conservation Halton, a culinary class with Open Appetite, art classes and music lessons with House of Chords, Rick Imus Music Studio and CRASH Rhythm.
