Ontario

Health Arts Society of Ontario (HASO) was established in 2011 to provide audiences isolated from our arts community the experience of enjoying professional performances in their own health care settings. 

Health Arts Society of Ontario is grateful to BMO Financial Group, whose generous support has made possible the first events of the Society.  It is always the first funding that requires the most faith in the values of the project and BMO Financial Group is a founder partner in Health Arts Society of Ontario.  BMO Financial Group has also made an extraordinarly generous three-year grant to the national programme of Health Arts Societies/SAMS for 2012-2014.

The Society launched its programme on February 2, 2011 in Toronto with a concert featuring members of the cast of the Canadian Opera Company's production of Mozart's The Magic Flute.

Healtharts PerformancesHealth Arts Society of Ontario (HASO) is an emerging force in the field of arts in health care in the province. It is driven by the central idea that people in care, especially in long-term isolation, are in need of cultural enrichment.  Presently much remains to be done to improve quality of life programmes.

Many individuals and organisations share this perception, particularly within health care authorities. Substantial progress can be made only by galvanising efforts of care providers, foundations, patient families, government agencies, and people who share the central idea and are willing to provide material support.  Although the word “partner” can be an imprecise term, we use it here to describe and to honour those who participate in the projects of Health Arts Society of Ontario in various ways.

Votre oeuvre me touche et suscite toute mon admiration  /  I was moved by this initiative which deserves all my admiration.
