Dixon Grove Middle School directly borders the local high-needs area of the Kingsway NIA and has a high transient population due to temporary refugee housing in the community. We partnered with the Gryphon Trio, two time Juno Award nominees and the Directors Designate of classical music summer programs at the Banff Centre, to provide music and visual arts programming throughout the entire school year. This program increased access and equity for these youth by removing socio economic barriers to arts participation. Arts Etobicoke is committed to continuing this valuable program in the next school year.
