The Friends of the Lyceum 

The Friends of the Lyceum supports Christianne’s Lyceum of Literature and Art in providing quality programs promoting childhood literacy to children who would not otherwise be able to participate due to economic constraints. The Lyceum is located in Vancouver, British Columbia. http://www.christiannehayward.com/


We are committed to the Lyceum’s vision of using the power of literature and art to catalyse individual imagination, familial growth and community change.

We believe that all children should have access to quality programs promoting literacy, regardless of their socioeconomic status.

We believe that bringing together children of diverse backgrounds in the Lyceums’ programs enriches the experience of all program participants.


The dedicated work done at the Lyceum adds to the development of the individual children, and to the fabric of the community by bringing together writers, educators and families to learn and share ideas.

Friends of the Lyceum provides access to programs offered at The Lyceum for children and families with financial constraints by:

  1. Fundraising for the Friends of the Lyceum Scholarship Fund
  2. Other fundraising initiatives
  3. Exploring the idea of a charitable status arm of the Lyceum
