Special Initiatives

Prologue is an Arts Education Leader

Prologue is proud to act as a leading resource for artists, schools and community presenters. The following are a few examples of our commitment to strengthening arts education and supporting our valued partnerships:

Arts Education Forums

The “Think Creatively! A Forum on Integrating the Arts into our Children’s Lives” was organized by CCI-Ontario Presenting Network, eyeGo to the Arts and Prologue. The forums were designed to coordinate the efforts of educators, artists and community presenters in order to increase performing arts experiences for children in Ontario.

Education Consultant

A part-time Education Consultant is available to provide advice on Teacher Resource Materials and to ensure that educational issues, policies and standards are applied to all Prologue projects.

ArtsSmarts/GénieArts Projects

Prologue is proud to be a member in the ArtsSmarts/GénieArts National Network, a group of like-minded organizations committed to improving the lives and learning capacity of young people in Canada.


The Paula Awards are named in recognition of the extraordinary contribution made by Paula and David Butterfield to Prologue’s Arts’ Endowment Fund. The interest received from the Fund has been used fully, or in part, to enable a work for young audiences by one or more Prologue artists and companies to be brought to completion. In the past eight years, twenty-four awards have been made to Prologue artists and companies.


Prologue invites teachers, principals, parents and volunteers from all district school boards to attend special events that showcase performances from Prologue artists and companies.

Ontario Touring Initiative

Supported by The Ontario Trillium Foundation, Prologue is working with four district school boards – Toronto, Peel, Rainbow County and Hastings-Prince Edward County – to ensure that all students have equal access to live performing arts.
