DAREarts was founded in Canada by Marilyn Field. Marilyn is a Canadian with a passion to inspire children. As a teacher with the Toronto District School Board, she discovered that any student's character could be developed through the application of the arts in daily life. She has a passion to help our young, and personally knows the power of the arts in life after the loss of her mother at the age of two. Since 1996, Marilyn has dedicated her life to bringing the arts as hope to children challenged by life circumstances by exposing them to a wider world, engaging them in creativity and empowering them to ignite change in their lives and in their community as leaders. DAREarts is her full-time focus.
Together we can make a difference, one future leader at a time.
