Oasis Alternative Secondary School: Arts and Social Change Program

About me

Introduction The Arts and Social Change Program at Oasis is the only arts alternative school program in the TDSB where students do not require an arts portfolio upon entry. This increases access for marginalized students who may be interested in the arts but have yet to develop their skills in the area. The ASC offers at-risk students a second chance and fresh approach to earn grade 9 and 10 credits. Staff provides an integrated arts approach to learning with an emphasis on visual, performing and media arts. Through the support of teachers, artists in residence, and on-going community partnerships, students have the opportunity to profile their social justice arts based work beyond the immediate community (through performance in community venues).
