We are excited to announce our creative arts workshop series! Nine talented local artists will lead you through a creative process to capture your lived experience of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Creative Collective Memory Arts Project is a chance for us to come together and reconnect, to create, celebrate, reflect, and to honour our unique stories and experiences while building a memory bank for future generations.

Whatever your interest, we have a range of workshops running from January until May 2022 that are sure to inspire.

Stay tuned for more details and booking information coming soon.
