2024 Student Outreach

Dive into an artistic whirlwind with your students!

The accessibility and democratization of arts for Quebec youth are founding values for Festival TransAmériques (FTA).

Student Outreach programs encourage high school, college and university students to discover the pleasure of the performing arts, stimulate their imagination and invite them to question the process of the artists and their roles in society.

Each year, the impressive quality of the students’ commitment reinforces our conviction of the importance of confronting them with strong contemporary works that question our society’s values.

Festival TransAmériques is a festival of contemporary dance and theatre that presents an average of 25 shows in performance venues and in outdoor public spaces over a two-week period. The 18th edition of the FTA will be held from May 22 to June 5, 2024 in Montreal.


The Student Outreach programs are supported by


FTA 2024 Student Excursions
