There are thousands of organizations and individuals in Canada who present live performing arts events. They are part of a dynamic, nation-wide performing arts ecosystem. Whether Canadians live in small rural communities or in large cities, they attend performances at arts festivals, in theatres, concert halls and community spaces.

Featured lesson plan: The War of 1812: Fortress Prince Edward Island

In this lesson, student groups investigate different forts. From their research they will generate a description and a list of items that the students want to include in a fictional ‘Fortress PEI’. Next, they will design a fort by creating a ‘blueprint’ of their group’s fort. They will choose a site and design a fort to be built on Prince Edward Island. The students will then compare and contrast their forts.
