Join us as a drop-in student in a wide array of art and expressive arts courses to have a taste of a cornucopia of transformational creative arts opportunities in movement, poetry, drama, music and more! Relevant to helpers of all kinds: teachers, guidance counsellors, resource teachers, behavior support teachers, clergy, recreation leaders, and anyone interested in learning to reach and motivate others through the medicine of art. You will love the kindred spirits you meet along the way, as you join this social justice minded peace movement through the healing power of the arts. Register for courses here. A written statement outlining your background is required.

January 2022 Update: All winter and spring courses will be offered online. In-person programming will resume in conjunction with lifting of COVID restrictions. We are hopeful for future face to face and land-based gatherings, while still including ongoing options for online participation. 

Winter  - Spring 2022

The Rivers of Solidarity: Expressive Arts for Social Transformation Certificate will engage participants in reflection, personal practice, and action on issues of identity, relationship, and social transformation. We will explore ways culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, and dis/Ability weave through systems of power, oppression, and privilege, as well as ways to engage in social action towards liberation and equity. Participants will be invited to deepen their awareness, understanding, capacity, and skills, working with the lived embodiment of systems and their transformation.
