Supporting our Communities

Memorial Banners and Art-based engagement activities to commemorate the One Year Anniversary of the Yonge Street Tragedy in Toronto Canada.

“Today, as our community remembers and commemorates the one year anniversary of the Yonge Street tragedy … we also remember the importance of solidarity and unity. We want to express our love and support to the families of victims and survivors.  We have been working on the #TorontoStrong murals for several days thinking of our Toronto, our communities and our ability to support each other and heal together. ” Paola Gomez, Program Director

Sharing the experience

We are invited to share our experiences and work with different groups: Community Centres, Arts Organizations, Schools,  Universities. We promote spaces where people feel safe and are willing to take responsibility in making our communities safe spaces for all.  We explain how we can do that by using Arts as a transformative tool.

at Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal    (November 2016)

Community Organizations, Clinicians and Scholars gathered to reflect on government and civil society responses to the 25K+ arriving to Canada , last year. We are clear: We don’t do Art Therapy. We create spaces where kids feel safe, find consistency and where they can self-express. We invite our participants to pamper their inner muse , we celebrate togetherness and our differences .
