History

Mariposa In The Schools (MITS) introduces Ontario young people to world oral cultural traditions, reaching 50 school communities each year with a repertoire of world music, dance, storytelling, spoken word and puppetry.

We believe that oral traditions and world performing arts, celebrate, critique and share knowledge and lead to cross-cultural understanding and inter-generational continuity, ultimately building more caring and joyful communities.

Our artists connect with children and youth in meaningful creative learning that challenges perceived abilities and racial and cultural stereotypes, as well as inspire us all to reflect, cooperate and build something that’s bigger than ourselves.

Since 1969 MITS has been committed to the principle of equity of access for all children. We invest our fundraising revenues in this cause, bringing affordable programs to under-resourced inner city, rural and First Nations communities across Ontario.
