PROGRAMS

Precious Gems Project raises funds to sponsor young people to attend existing programs in their community and creates / delivers programs where no arts programs exist. Our current programs are visual arts based. We have had opportunities for our ‘gems’ to experience other art forms e.g. Dance performances at Harbourfront Centre.

We continue to look for additional opportunities to increase our programming and include additional forms of creative expression i.e. music, dance, and spoken word.

Please contact us at aileen@preciousgemsproject.com if you have suggestions for our programs or would like to collaborate with us.
