What is it?
An intensive workshop on the principles and practices of art that engages with and creates community;
A 6-day exhilarating experiential journey of learning and artmaking;
Everything (or many things!) you need to know to launch your own project;
Open to artists from all forms and traditions and others with an interest in community-engaged arts;
A blend of presentations, discussions, hands-on activities, creative explorations and take-home resources;
Lead by Ruth Howard, Artistic Director of Jumblies Theatre, with other co-facilitators and guest artists;
Adaptable to diverse partnerships, contexts, interests and regions across Canada.
“Arts For All Essentials taught me how to embrace new skills & the way I can collaborate with other artists. I came into the workshop in a frustrated state of mind, and I left feeling equipped & inspired, with many of my fears and anxieties dissolved.”
