This week we are at the "Using the Creative Arts in Community" training with Tessa Mendel. This training is offered by the 4Cs Foundation as a follow up to the Arts Engage! Symposium last year. We are learning together with six others from the Halifax community.
Areas will we be learning about include: design and facilitation of creative art programs; participatory experiences of different art forms (including theatre, dance, music and visual arts); approaches to personal and social transformation; using an anti-oppressive framework to work with issues of diversity, inclusivity and identity in different communities... and more. Whew! - sounds challenging and interesting. We'll let you know how it turns out.
