This is an opportunity for Carleton students to immerse themselves in the world of the arts, by supporting a diverse range of activities such as concerts, lectures, workshops/classes, conferences and exhibits at Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre (CDCC) – Carleton University’s Arts, Performance and Learning Centre.
Students will gain invaluable experience working first-hand with a wide variety of user groups, which are part of the vibrant community at CDCC, including: non-profit organizations, arts presenters, arts and youth educators, cultural organizations, community and health associations, students, university faculties and departments, lifelong learning programs, homeless youth research programs, and beyond.
Through your generous support, students will get hands-on involvement and acquire skills that are transferable well beyond graduation through their experience at CDCC.
Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre bridges the gap between Carleton and the broader community, fostering programming that is multigenerational, diverse and inclusive in the heart of downtown Ottawa. From unique learning experiences to an array of live performances, CDCC offers meaningful collaborations with local, national and international partners.
Student interns are integral members of the CDCC team, working alongside staff members to enhance the experience of university and community guests by providing exceptional customer service and event support.
Experiential learning has many benefits, including:
- Increasing students’ engagement in their arts education
- Building skills and knowledge that can be applied outside of the classroom
- Enhancing critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making skills
- Improving learning outcomes by helping students learn more deeply through both feeling and thinking
Funds raised will go directly towards supporting student experiential learning opportunities at Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre.
