Outreach Programs

Addressing barriers to accessing theatre arts and ways to engage with new audiences.

Indigenous Arts Project

Newcomer Arts Project

LGBTQ+ Arts Project

Our Outreach programs provide access to the performing arts and serve children, youth, and young adults who, due to economic and cultural barriers, have not had equal access to participation in theatre arts. They provide individuals with opportunities to foster self-expression and personal growth, and enable the sharing of diverse narratives and perspectives.

Our Outreach programs involve storytelling, playwriting, theatre performance, and mask making, all of which inspire the development of self-esteem, communication skills, and group bonds. They are made possible by the generosity, compassion, and commitment of our outstanding partners.

Theatre Aquarius offers a range of vital Outreach programs that assess and address barriers to accessing theatre arts, including:


  • Indigenous Arts programs
  • Newcomer Arts programs
  • LGBTQ+ Arts programs
  • Play Club for Underserved Youth
  • Sponsored Theatre School Registrations

For the first time in their lives, our kids were exposed to a world of magic that one can only be exposed to through art. Thank you Theatre Aquarius for opening your doors and exposing newcomer children to the beautiful world of theatre.
