About CKA


“PARTICIPATION AND ACCESS TO THE ARTS IS A RIGHT NOT A PRIVILEGE”

Purpose
Culture for Kids in the Arts is a registered charitable organization dedicated to providing high quality arts experiences to children and youth, regardless of their financial circumstances. Designed to promote arts in education, Culture for Kids in the Arts programming encourages students to expand their learning potential through their natural enjoyment of the performing, visual and media arts.

Vision
Vitek Wincza, Artistic Director of the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts, recognized through his own experience that arts programs can motivate and inspire learning. His passion to remove barriers for full access to the arts ignited this dream. From this dream, he designed arts programs that would be inclusive regardless of talent, financial status or heritage. As a result, the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts became the founding partner of CFKA, providing facilities, expertise and resources. Vitek is recognized as Culture for Kids in the Arts Founder and Programming Principal.

Organization
Founded in 1996, Culture for Kids in the Arts (CFKA) is run by a volunteer Board of Directors who seek and generate funding for arts programs, oversee the management of programming, finances and budget and the general promotion of Culture for Kids in the Arts and its mission.
