Creative Action

Creativeweb2.jpgCreative Action is a specialized, full-year program for Grade 8 students who have shown leadership potential and a desire to cultivate their passion in the arts to make a difference in their community and beyond. Students will collaborate with a variety of artists/partnerships throughout the city and province while working on Grade 8 curriculum in a creative, unique, and experiential classroom. Creative Action will nurture Saskatoon's next generation of local citizens, artists, and leaders.

By providing opportunities to explore, create, discover, and strengthen skills through Creative Action, students will:

  • Be engaged citizens who understand their rights and responsibilities to use their voice and take action;
  • Be confident leaders who connect with various communities in a meaningful way;
  • Explore cultural contexts of artists/art forms to recognize the relevance and power of the arts; and,
  • Inspire change through their creative expressions.

Diverse Community

Creative Action students come from neighbourhoods all across Saskatoon. As a result, the class is composed of students from a variety of diverse backgrounds. This diversity is an asset in our classroom as students learn to establish their voices and honour a variety of ideas and perspectives. Creative Action students will have opportunities to collaborate creatively to spark positive change in our community.
