Be Creative with #MonsterArts for Youth

Started in 2013, #MonsterArts for Youth provides children of all backgrounds in schools hands-on workshops in Bollywood and Bhangra dance, Hindi music, ghazal writing, mandala-making, filmmaking and more, led by professional artists, to break cultural silos and fill gaps in culturally relevant curriculum. South Asian students see themselves reflected in the curriculum, while non-South Asian students are invited to experience and understand the culture.

#MonsterArts for Youth is supported by the Peel District School Board and York Region District School board, with workshops available virtually and in-person to all public, Catholic and private schools across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area at a subsidized rate.

  • “Since collaborating with MonstrARTity many years ago our level of engagement across York Region District School Board elementary schools has exploded. Never have I seen such enthusiasm and excitement for strong, well curated workshops for youth. In this current climate MonstrARTity is one of the very few, if not the only organization that exists in the GTA that can provide such in-depth, thoughtful and engaging workshops. They were easily able to make Asian/South Asian culture relevant, important and affirmed. The art, dance and other workshops all celebrated the positive aspects of Asian/South Asian heritage which are needed in so many schools.”

    – Wahid Khan, South Asian Teacher Liaison, YRDSB

  • “It is always difficult for teachers to ensure that culturally relevant materials is covered in a professional way, we don\\’t often have the access to what we need. to have this program relieves our stress and benefits the students.”

    – Janet ClattenBurg, Teacher, Derry West Village PS

  • “Very important for students to be exposed to other cultures – also this is directly connected to the Grade Two curriculum as well as it teaches students about the need to be INCLUSIVE which is one of our character traits.”

    – Wendy Murray, Teacher, Janet McDougald PS

  • “Students left with knowledge of a dance style that may have been familiar, but never actually experienced. Very beneficial!”

    – Amanda Rocha, Teacher, Hillside

  • “The best story I have to share about my experience is from Balmoral School where at the end of the workshop one teacher came to me and told me that a new Syrian refugee student had joined the school two weeks ago. This student was very quiet and when she spoke most teachers and students didn’t understand her. The teacher said my dance workshop was the first time in two weeks this student had smiled and engaged and come alive and looked happy. THIS is why this program is needed.”

    – Lopa Sarkar, MAY Instructor, Dance
