Course Description

Recreation professionals are increasingly required to hold an expanded knowledge on how to program arts, culture, and heritage engagement in community life. Through guest speakers' presentations, field trips, and hands-on art encounters, students develop an understanding of the values associated with arts, culture, and heritage in recreation. They apply this understanding by developing activities, such as facilitating a creative activity for a community group, participating in creating a community cultural development legacy artwork, and critically investigating community art/culture/heritage events in order to examine relationships and responsibilities of recreation organizations, to develop and facilitate these types of events.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Bachelor of Recreation Management and the Diploma in Recreation Leadership.
