Chan Centre Youth Pass
The Chan Centre Youth Pass was developed in 2022 to provide inspiring — possibly life-changing — arts experiences for young people.
With generous support from Chan Family Foundation and Heritage Canada, this program provides 50 tickets for each Chan Presents concert to selected young people, and their companions, who might not otherwise be able to attend events at the Chan Centre. Their performance experience includes social and educational components related to the concerts, such as pre-concert materials, discussion group activities, and an opportunity to network with peers and meet artists. These experiences are delivered by UBC student mentors and are designed to build comfort with attending performances and encourage repeat attendance.
Roots & Shoots World Music Program
The Roots and Shoots Program is a music education outreach program run by the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts for under-resourced Vancouver area elementary schools. The program offers children from a broad range of socio-economic realities and backgrounds rare opportunities to experience world music and learn about the diverse cultures from performing artists. The program engages up to six schools each year, offering a concert held in the Chan Centre as well as six hours of workshops held in each school.
