NEWS RELEASE

THE ARTSPEAKS PROJECT

*************************
The ArtSpeaks team invites all adults and youth (age 16+) dealing with trauma to join them for the new Art-Drop Fridays: Guest Artist Series. Workshops run from 1-4 p.m. at the Ideal Art Space, 724 Queen St. E., beginning Friday, Sept. 29, 2017 through to Oct. 27, 2017.   These sessions are pay-what-you-can/$5 suggested donation. No pre-registration necessary.

ART-Drop Fridays: Guest Artist Series presents an opportunity for participants to learn about and experience the artistic process of different local artists. Each week a guest artist will share their artistic practice with participants.  

All necessary materials will be provided—no prior art-making experience is necessary to participate. This is an opportunity for female/male identifying folks ages 16+ impacted by sexual violence, addictions and mental health challenges to come together in learning a new craft or arts-based skill.

About ArtSpeaks

The ArtSpeaks Project is a one-year pilot-project intended to offer women and female-identifying folks impacted by sexual violence, addictions, and mental health challenges the opportunity to participate in arts-based-learning and cultural mentorship with local professional artists towards the creation of personally meaningful and exhibition-ready art works.

The ArtSpeaks Project is generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and represents the partnering of three local agencies invested in women's health: Breton House, Phoenix Rising Women’s Centre and the SAH's Sexual Assault Care Centre.
