building confidence, connection, and community
Working in conjunction with the Canadian Tapestry and Texture Centre, Ixchel Surarz, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and Sheridan College - this a 10 week 2x/week art program to build confidence, create intergenerational activity and relieve social isolation. Providing a Fall and Spring version to differently abled young adults and seniors of Halton.
An absolute honour and beautiful experience!
Creating community is close to my heart, and now with the COVID 19 experience we all have a true, very real sense of the impact that social isolation can have over time.
I have had the pleasure of working with a wide range of groups in-person and over Zoom, in groups from 4 up to 40 persons plus instructors.
Examples of this are programs for seniors groups, at-risk youth, differently-abled groups, community centres, new comers groups, and ESL groups.
If you have a community or group that you believe would benefit from an art program
I have a great deal of experience working in collaboration with amazing colleagues to create and deliver art programs specific to your needs that provide connection, encourage self esteem, confidence, and build a beautiful sense of bonding and community over time.
Each community is different and there are elements and sensitivities to consider.
