"Art and culture are powerful tools with which to engage communities in various levels of change and growth. Having access to a world class facility where art, creativity, culture and education connect and are highlighted, encouraged, experienced, and developed by experts is very exciting! Schools, families, youth, seniors, children and the city as a whole would benefit greatly in numerous ways. I am anxious to support this concept as both a parent and an educator. I will be among the first to bring school groups and youth to the facility and participate regularly in the programs it has to offer."

“Do you want the young people with whom you work to be filled with hope, wonder and purpose….to find connection to the space and place they can connect? Through their work with Barbara, our students found life-giving and life-transforming opportunities. We support the Barbara La Pointe Children’s Arts Centre and believe that art truly will create futures.”
Terry Bourassa-Tahiliani – CBE Educator
“A local destination for quality art programs, facilities and equipment is something that I believe area students, their parents and teachers would find most exciting to have the opportunity to use, regardless of age or ability.”
